Motion is the act of changing location or position. This course will first discuss the normal reaction, force, and acceleration relative to motion. It will also cover collisions, constant and vertical circular motion, and centripetal force. You will then study projectile motion with and without air resistance, momentum, impulse, force, and time. You will also look into kinetic, elastic and potential energies, and the conservation of energy. You will also study Kepler's law and review circular and elliptical orbits, and the velocity of satellites.

Gravity has been defined as the force by which a planet or other body draws objects toward its center. This course will give you an overview of gravity. You will study weightlessness, apparent weight, and how to calculate the apparent weight. You will look into Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation and energy transfers in space including their graphical representation. This course will also cover Hooke's law, the wave-like nature of light, the photoelectric effect, the Emission and absorption spectra, and electric fields and the electron.

Physics plays a hugely important role in science. When you take this course, you will be able to look deeply into Newton's law, Kepler's law, and Hooke's law as well as understand the different types of forces such as gravitational force, normal force, friction force, and net force. You will also learn about the center of mass, the weight of an object, and more! So, check out this course today and learn more about the fascinating subject of physics.
