Based on the distance travelled and the amount of time spent, there are two kinds of motion which are uniform and non-uniform motion.
Uniform motion is defined as the motion of an object on a straight line with constant velocity along that line, regardless of time, because it occupies equal distances at equal time intervals.
- The motion of the earth around the sun
- In swing machine, vibrating spring
- Movement of the ceiling fan’s blades.
- If a car’s speed is 10 m/s, it implies that in one second the car covers 10 meters. The speed is unchanged in each second.
- Pendulum with equivalent amplitude on either side
Non-uniform motion is defined as the movement of an object at varying speeds and does not cover the same distance at equal time intervals, regardless of the time interval’s duration.
- Moving train
- If in the first two seconds, a car occupies 10 meters and in the next two seconds it covers15 meters.
- Bouncing ball
- Asteroid movement
- Movement of an aeroplane in clouds and landing
- Two cars colliding each other
