Motion and Measurement of Distances Summary
Periodic motion examples

Motion and its type:

An object is said to be in motion if its place varies from time to time. On the basis of the movement a motion can be:

Rectilinear: Movement on a straight path.

Circular: Movement on a circular path. e.g. a moving fan.

Periodic motion: In this motion, an object repeats its place after some time. For example, movement of a swinging jhoola, pendulum, strings of guitar etc. are examples of periodic motion.

Combination of circular motion and rectilinear motion: In this type of motion object shows a circular motion as well a rectilinear motion. For example a rolling ball, a moving cycle wheel.
