What is Motion?
Motion is the act of changing positions.
Types of Motion
There are four types of motion: 1. Linear Motion 2. Projectile Motion 3. Circular Motion 4. Vibrational Motion
So let's get deeper!
An object will naturally go in a straight line because of inertia unless a force makes it move. As an example, if a driver slams his/her brakes the passengers will be jolted forward.
When an object is pushed into the air at an angle. If a ball is thrown up, it must come down. Most projectile motion objects do come down, however, some, such as a remote controlled helicopter, will not come down.
Circular motion is a movement of an object along the circumference of a circle or rotation along a circular path.
A molecular vibration occurs when atoms in a molecule are in periodic motion while the molecule as a whole has constant translational and rotational motion.
Speed is the rapidity of movement or action. The speed of you and I right now are probably very minimal, as you are sitting there looking at your computer.
Well that's it!
