Types of Motion
- Uniform motion
- Non uniform motion
The bodies moving with constant speed or velocity have uniform motion or increase at the uniform rate.
b) Non Uniform motion: When unequal distances are covered in equal interval of time, the motion is said to be in non uniform motion. The bodies executing non uniform motion have varying speed or velocity.
We can even classify motion into three types:
- Translatory motion
- Rotatory motion
- Vibratory motion
Translatory MotionIn translatory motion the particle moves from one point in space to another. This motion may be along a straight line or along a curved path.
They can be classified as:
- Rectilinear Motion
Motion along a straight line is called rectilinear motion.
- Curvilinear Motion
Motion along a curved path is called curvilinear motion.
