Circular Motion and Gravitation Review

Description: The Circular Motion and Gravitation Review includes 40 questions of varying type. Questions pertain to the application of Newton's three laws of motion and universal gravitation to situations involving the motion of objects in circles and orbiting objects. The following concepts are emphasized: speed, velocity, tangential velocity, acceleration, centripetal acceleration, inertia, free-body diagrams, uniform circular motion, roller coaster rides, roller coaster loops, turns, normal force, weight, force of gravity, free-body diagrams, gravity, gravitation, universal gravitation, inverse square law, free fall, acceleration of gravity, orbits, satellites, Kepler's laws, planetary motion, orbital speed, and orbital period.

The Review is available in three versions:

  1. Printable Version
    The printable version includes only the questions. There are no answers and no links to online help. It's perfect for printing and using as a practice test.
  2. Questions with Links
    This version includes questions with links to online help that is pertinent to each question. 
  3. Finally, you can use the Answers Version of the Review. This inludes questions, answers, explanations/solutions, and links to online help that is pertinent to each question. This version is available with all the questions on one page or with a portion of the questions on one page.

  2. Minds On Physics the App Series

    Minds On Physics the App ("MOP the App") is a series of interactive questioning modules for the student that is serious about improving their conceptual understanding of physics. Each module of the series covers a different topic and is further broken down into sub-topics. A "MOP experience" will provide a learner with challenging questions, feedback, and question-specific help in the context of a game-like environment. It is available for phones, tablets, Chromebooks, and Macintosh computers. It's a perfect resource for those wishing to refine their conceptual reasoning abilities. Part 2 of the series includes topics in Circular Motion and Gravitation.
