Physics / Motion

Motion makes the world go 'round'.
When we think of motion we often think of cars, bicycles, kids running, basketballs bouncing and airplanes flying. But motion is so much more.

A body is said to be in motion if it changes its position with respect to fixed point or objects around it.

  • Explore the different types of motions in your daily life - e.g. Oscillatory motion-motion of swing-, rectilinear motion-motion of car on straight road, rotational motion-motion of merry-go-round.
  • Calculate the speed of an object by finding out the distance covered by object in unit time. Also compare which object is moving faster.

Force is a physical cause that changes or may tend to change the state of rest or the state of motion of an object.

Force is any influence that causes an object to undergo

  • a change in speed,
  • a change in direction,
  • a change in shape.
