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.
