TOPIC 6: MOTION IN STRAIGHT LINE
Motion is the change of position of an object from one place to another. It is the study of the movement of a body from one point to another. It studies of all aspects of motion including distance and displacement, speed and velocity, acceleration and deceleration e.t. c.
There are two types of motions;
- Circular motion– Is the motion of an object in a circular path. Examples; Motion of the electron around the nucleus of an atom, Revolutionary movement of the earth around the sun, Motion of a car around a cornered road.
- Linear motion– Is the motion of an object in a straight-line path. Examples; A fruit falling from a tree, a stone thrown vertically upward, a bus moving along a straight road.
