LINEAR
MOTION
Introduction

## Linear motion is the motion a straight

line and
the movement in a direction where Distance = Length of the road
forwards is positive Displacement = Length of the line AB
and backwards is negative.
Kinematics is the section of physics If the motion in a straight line and in one
which studies the direction , the magnitude of distance is
motions of objects without considering same as the magnitude of
the effects that produce the motion. The displacement .
study generally involves the analysis of
the position of an object in relation to
time.
Dynamics is the section of physics
which studies the
causes of motion of an object. Speed and Velocity ,v

## Distance ,d and Displacement, s Speed is the rate of change of distance.

Speed = distance travelled
Distance ,d is how far a body travels time taken
during a motion
without considering any particular Average speed = total distance traveled
direction or the length total time taken
of the path of an object. Speed is a scalar quantity and the value
Distance is a scalar quantity and the always positive.
value always positive. The unif of speed is metre per second (m
The unif of distance is metre (m) s-1)

## Displacement , s is distance traveled in

a particular direction. Velocity is the rate of change of
Displacement ,s = final position – initial displacement.
position Velocity = displacement
Displacement is a vector quantity and time taken
the value can be positive and negative v=s
depend on their directions. t
The unif of dispacement is metre (m) Average velocity = total displacement
total time taken
Diagram below shows the difference
between distance Velocity is a vector quantity and the
and displacement. value can be positive and negative
depend on their directions.
The unif of velocity is metre per second
(m s-1)

## If an object moves in a circle with

constant speed , it has different
velocities at different points along the
1
circle because the direction and hence
the velocity of the object is always
changing as shown in the following
diagram.

Find
