Linear Motion

Moving things have two different kinds of motion Linear Motion Harmonic Motion Motion is a change in position in a certain amount of time

Linear Motion Goes from one place to another without repeating Involves the concepts of distance, time, speed, and acceleration

Linear Motion What are some examples of Linear Motion?

Linear Motion Speed Is the distance an object travels from one place to another over a period of time Basically it means, HOW FAST AN OBJECT IS MOVING

Linear Motion Speed Speed is a scalar quantity An object with no movement at all has a zero speed

Linear Motion

Speed Is calculated by taking the distance traveled divided by the time taken

Linear Motion Velocity Is speed in a given direction Is a vector quantity Is the rate at which an object Changes positon

A bike moves 50 meters in 5 seconds. Calculate the speed of the bike.

A car travels 60 m/s for 60 secs. Calculate how far it traveled.

A car travels 200 miles in 8 hours. Calculate the car’s speed.
