There are many examples of linear motion in everyday life, such as when an athlete runs along a straight track. Linear motion is the most basic of all motions and is a common part of life. More »

Uniform linear motion is motion that occurs in one dimension of space at a constant speed and direction. It is a key principle of physics, directly related to Newton's first law. More »

According to BBC, "mechanical motion" is defined as one of the four different motion types in mechanical systems. They are rotary motion, linear motion, reciprocating motion and oscillating motion. More »

Uniformly accelerating motion refers to a state of motion that accelerates at a constant rate in a single direction. Gravity is an example of uniform acceleration; an object in free fall accelerates at a constant 9.8 met... More »

Examples of reciprocating motion include a rack and pinion mechanism, a Scotch yoke mechanism and a traversing head shaper. These examples define this repetitive, up-and-down or back-and-forth linear motion. More »

Some examples of periodic motion include a bouncing basketball, a swinging tire swing, a metronome or a planet in its orbit. Periodic motion is a physics term meaning the repetition of the same motion in the same amount ... More »
