Study Notes

Speed of a Vehicle

  • Speed of a vehicle is calculated by dividing the total distance covered by the total time taken, assuming constant speed.

Types of Motion

  • Uniform Motion: When an object moves in a straight line with constant speed.
  • Non-Uniform Motion: When an object moves on a straight line, but its motion changes constantly.

Periodic Motion

  • Simple Pendulum: A type of periodic motion that consists of a small metallic ball or a stone suspended from a string.
  • Bob: The metal ball or stone at the end of the pendulum.
  • True Motion: The to-and-fro motion of a simple pendulum.
  • One Oscillation: When the pendulum moves from one position to another and back to its initial position.
  • Complete Oscillation: When the pendulum completes one full cycle of motion.
  • Time Period: The time taken to complete one oscillation.


  • Day: The time taken between one sunrise and the next.
