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

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

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.
