NCERT Grade 11 Chapter 5, Laws of Motion, part of Unit III, Laws of Motion. This chapter will help to move ahead of motion of a particle in space which is learnt in the previous chapter(s) to learning about what governs the motion of bodies. How bodies move, the external factors that act on them, direction of force and corresponding motion, effect of gravitation and others are described in this chapter. Over the course of time, eminent physicists have studied about motion. Contribution of physicists such as Aristotle, Galileo and Newton to study motion are mentioned in this chapter. Their works and experiences have helped to conclude laws that govern the motion. Aristotle’s fallacy, law of inertia, Newton’s first, second and third law of motion, etc. are learnt in this chapter.
NCERT Grade 11 Chapter 5, Laws of Motion also helps the students to understand the conservation of momentum, equilibrium of a particle, common forces in mechanics, friction, circular motion and solving problems of mechanics. These topics are not only limited to this chapter but will help the students throughout their learning of physics. Along with these concepts of modern physics; relation of them with ancient science and evolution have been interestingly penned in NCERT Grade 11 Chapter 5, Laws of Motion. Such ideas, help to engage the students and develop their learning abilities.
