Question description

From Chapter 5, we will learn about how the concept of force and Newton's laws can be applied in a number of situations, including problems involving friction, drag, tension, compression, and shear. "The Apple and the Moon" video will summarize the basic concepts of Newton's law of gravitation and how Newton deduced that the same law applies to falling objects, satellites orbiting planets, planets orbiting stars, etc.

Tasks:

  1. Watch the Video Lessons, until you're comfortable with the material.

  2. Watch background videos "The Apple and The Moon", available within the Lesson Plan.
    1. As you watch it, type your answers as detailed and completely as possible in the document provided within the assignment submission link.
    2. 2-3 sentences are expected for each question. Make sure you include your name.
    3. Due Date: 12/19/2018
    4. please no plagiarism
