Linear MotionEdit

Linear Motion referes to any motion moving in a straight line without changing it's direction

Linear Motion with constant speed over timeEdit

Any Linear Motion that has constant speed at all time can be expressed as

  • Speed
  • Acceleration
  • Distance

Linear Motion with changing speed over timeEdit

For any Linear Motion travels at different speed at different time

v1 at t1
v at t
  • Change in Speed
  • Change in Time
∆t =  

The ratio of Change in Speed over Change in Time gives the Accelerarion of the motion or The Rate of Change of Velocity versus Time

  • Rate of Change of Speed over Time
