### Which type of linear motion has a constant velocity and zero acceleration?

Uniform linear motion

### What is the mathematical description of position x as it varies with time t for linear motion?

$x = vt$

### According to Newton's first law of motion, what happens to objects that do not experience any net force?

They continue to move in a straight line with constant velocity

### What can cause an object to change the direction of its motion under everyday circumstances?

External forces such as gravity and friction

### In linear motion, what is the type of motion exhibited by an athlete running a 100-meter dash along a straight track?

Uniform linear motion

## Study Notes

### Linear Motion

• Uniform motion has a constant velocity and zero acceleration.
• The mathematical description of position x as it varies with time t for linear motion is x(t) = x0 + vt, where x0 is the initial position and v is the velocity.

### Newton's First Law of Motion

• Objects that do not experience any net force remain in their state of motion or rest.

### Factors Affecting Motion

• Friction and air resistance can cause an object to change the direction of its motion under everyday circumstances.

### Types of Linear Motion

• Rectilinear motion is the type of motion exhibited by an athlete running a 100-meter dash along a straight track.
