Motion

Motion refers to the movement of an object from one position to another position

Motion's Characteristics

If there is a Force F that makes an object of Mass m to move a Distance s within Time t Then

  • Speed
The ratio of Distance over Time gives Speed of Motion
v = \frac{s}{t}
  • Acceleration
The ratio of Speed over time gives Acceleration of the motion
a = \frac{v}{t}
  • Distance
Distance travels of the motion is defined as the product of Mass times Acceleration
S = v t = a t2
  • Force
Force causing the Motion
F = m a = m v t = p t
  • Work Done
Work done by the force is the product of the Force and the Distance travel
W = F s F v t = p v
  • Energy
Work done by the force is the product of the Force and the Distance travel
E = \frac{W}{t} = \frac{F s}{t} = F v = p a

Types of Motion

  1. Linear Motion
  2. Non - Linear Motion
  3. Periodic Motion
