Introduction to Linear Motion

LINEAR MOTION

A moving body can exhibit any of the following types of motion, namely:

  1. Linear motion
  2. Circular motion
  3. Oscillatory motion

This topic deals with study of linear motion of bodies, which is the motion in a straight line.

The study of motion is divided into two branches;

  • Kinematics; where the forces causing motion are disregarded.
  • Dynamics; which deals with the motion of objects and forces acting on them.
