Types of Motion
In physics, motion can be classi ed under the following types for ease of understanding.
Linear motion – where the object moves along a straight line.
Circular motion – where the object moves along a circular path.
Oscillatory motion – where an object describes a repetitive to and fro movement retracing its original path.
Uniform motion – where an object travels equal distance in equal intervals of time.
Random motion – where the motion of the object does not fall in any of the above categories.
