# Ch 26: Understanding Motion in Physics

These text and video lessons can be used to refresh your memory or gain new knowledge about laws, principles and formulas pertaining to motion. These materials can help you prepare for an exam, complete an assignment or support your classroom studies.

## Understanding Motion in Physics - Chapter Summary

Use these lessons to better understand relevant terms, laws and formulas related to motion. You'll explore momentum, friction, velocity, acceleration and vectors. Each lesson comes with a practice quiz that allows you to apply these formulas and practice solving motion-related problems. Upon completing the chapter, you should be able to do the following:

• Provide details about the laws of motion
• Explain the relationship between momentum and impulse, and use the law of conservation of momentum
• Solve momentum and vector resolution problems
• Detail the result of force upon an object
• List the types of friction and vectors
• Calculate vector addition and the scalar multiplication of vectors
• Understand the principles of motion in a plane and projectile motion
• Describe uniform circular motion
• Differentiate between speed and velocity, and know the formulas for instantaneous speed and velocity
• Determine the answers to problems combining acceleration, velocity, displacement and position
• Discuss relative velocity in kinematics

Prepared by professional science educators, these lessons contain illustrations and detailed examples that make learning this material easy and engaging. The lessons are accessible at any time, on any device, and transcripts can be printed for quick reference. Take the self-assessment quizzes to measure how much you have retained from each lesson and what topics, if any, you'll need to review further.
