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:
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 the object in unit time. Also compare which object is moving faster.
Learn about simple pendulum and methods to find its time period.
Motion of objects can be presented in pictorial form by their distance-time graphs, velocity-time graph, acceleration-time graph. Learn to draw different types of graph and find different physical quantities from them.
