Additional Learning Tools and Resources

Watching a presentation is a passive activity. Getting information is important ... but its not the destination or end point. Now that you've watched the video, its time to do something with the information you've heard. It's time to act on it. The resources below provide an opportunity to do this. We encourage learners to solidify their learning through the use of one or more of the following resources.

Concept Builders, Circular Motion and Satellite Motion section, Gravitational Field Strength

Concept Builders provide you an opportunity for practice with immediate feedback and opportunities for correction. A Help Me! button is available for each question.

Minds On Physics, Mission CG7: Acceleration of Gravity

A Minds On Physics mission provides you a great workout in careful reading, analytical thinking, and conceptual reasoning. They're difficult but there's a Help button waiting to assist. If you endure the frustration of getting questions wrong, you will likely get it right on the test. That's a win!


Calculator Pad, Circular Motion and Gravitation Problem Set, #19-21

Our Calculator Pad problem sets provide a collection of problems, with answers, and audio-guided solutions. For a student attempting to learn how to use a physics equation, you couldn't ask for more.


Physics Interactives: Value of g on Earth

This activity (referenced on Slide 4 of the video) allows you to click at various locations on a globe and view the value of g at that location. There are some surprising results.


Physics Interactives: Value of g on Other Planets

This activity (referenced on Slide 5 of the video) provides an easy interface for viewing the value of g on other planets in our Solar System.


The Tutorial, Circular and Satellite Motion Chapter: The Value of g

The easy-to-understand language and common sense approach of our Tutorial pages makes it a great written reference when you need one.
