Motion And Physics
What we absorb from it.
The Basics Of Motion
Which of these are considered to be motion? (Poll)
Relative Motion, Speed, Displacement,Velocity, and Acceleration
Motion isn't just basic movement. You have to deal with speed, velocity, acceleration, distance, speed,displacement, average velocity,and instantaneous velocity. Sure these things may sound the same but they are all different. Not just their definitions either;they each have their own calculations.
An object is in motion when it is continuously changing its position relative to a reference point and is observed by a person or detection device. For example, you can see that an automobile is moving with respect to the ground.
The displacement of an object is how far out of place an object is; better known as the object's overall change in position.
The distance the object goes in a period of time is its speed. If the speed of an object is in a specific direction, it is called velocity. The change in velocity over a period of time is the acceleration of the object.
