Physics Notes >Physics is the scientific study of matter and energy and how they interact with each other. This energy can take the form of motion, light, electricity, radiation, gravity . . . just about anything, honestly. Physics deals with matter on scales ranging from sub-atomic particles (i.e. the particles that make up the atom and the particles that make up those particles) to stars and even entire galaxies.

Physics is the scientific study of matter and energy and how they interact with each other.

This energy can take the form of motion, light, electricity, radiation, gravity . . . just about anything, honestly. Physics deals with matter on scales ranging from sub-atomic particles (i.e. the particles that make up the atom and the particles that make up those particles) to stars and even entire galaxies.

**Group Size:** Independent learners

**Learning Objectives:**

Gravity
**Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion:**

1] Each planet moves in an elliptical orbit with the sun at one focus

2] The line form the sun to any planet sweeps out equal areas of space in equal time intervals

3] The squares of the times of revolution (days, months or years) of the planets are proportional to the cubes of their average distances from the sun**.**

**Law of Universal Gravitation:** Every mass in the universe attracts every other mass with a force that for two masses is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance separating them

F = (G(m1*m2))/d^2

**Inverse-Square Law:** A law relating the intensity of an effect to the inverse square of the distance from the cause. Intensity ~ 1/distance`2

Gravity follows an inverse-square law, as do the effects of electric, magnetic, light, sound, and radiation phenomena

**Weightlessness:**condition wherein gravitational pull appears to be A lacking.

**Spring Tide:** A high or low tide that occurs when the sun, earth, and moon are all lined up so that the tides due to the sun and moon coincide, making the high tides higher than average and the low tides lower than average

**Neap Tide:** A tide that occurs when the moon is midway between new and full, in either direction. Tides due to the sun and moon partly cancel, making the high tides lower and the low tides higher than average.

**Gravitational Field:** The space surrounding a massive body in which another mass experiences a force of attraction

**Black Hole:** The configuration of a massive star that has undergone gravitational collapse, in which gravitation at the surface is so intense that even the star's own light cannot escape.
