Question

Which of these is an example of oscillatory motion?
  1. Motion of an electric fan
  2. Motion of a stone dropped from a roof
  3. Motion of a spinning top
  4. Motion of pendulum of a wall clock


Solution

The correct option is D Motion of pendulum of a wall clock
A periodic motion that is to and fro or back and forth motion about a fixed point is called an oscillatory motion. Motion of pendulum of a wall clock is an example of oscillatory
motion.
The motion of an electric fan is an example of periodic motion, not oscillatory motion. The motion of spinning top is not oscillatory motion.
Motion of a stone dropped off a roof is an example of a rectilinear motion.
