Lesson 1 of 6
Introduction to Linear Motion
A moving body can exhibit any of the following types of motion, namely:
- Linear motion
- Circular motion
- 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.
