Description

Motion in a Straight Line:
If an object changes its position with respect to its surroundings with time, then it is called in motion. It is a change in the position of an object over time. Motion in a straight line is nothing but linear motion. As the name suggests, it’s in a particular straight line; thus, it can be said that it uses only one dimension.

Speed:
Speed is measured as the ratio of distance to the time in which the distance was covered. Speed is a scalar quantity. Its S.I. unit is m/s.

Acceleration:
Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity with respect to time. Its S.I. unit is m/s2

Distance:
Distance is the total movement of an object without any regard to direction.

Displacement:
Displacement is defined to be the change in the position of an object.

Types of Linear Motion

The linear motion, also called Rectilinear Motion can be of two types:

• Uniform linear motion with constant velocity or zero acceleration
• Non-uniform linear motion with variable velocity or non-zero acceleration

Linear motion is the most straightforward kind of one-dimensional motion. As Newton’s first law of motion suggests, an object will either be at rest or continue to move in a straight line with a uniform velocity unless and until an external force is applied to it.
