Uniform motion describes an object that is moving in a specific direction at a constant speed. While uniform motion typically describes objects moving in a straight line, uniform circular motion consists of an object mov... More »

Objects that move in a circular route at the same speed through multiple revolutions experience uniform circular motion. For this to occur, acceleration of the object on the circular path is dependent upon velocity and t... More »

An object is said to have uniform velocity if the direction of motion and the rate at which the object changes its position is constant. In other words, an object with uniform velocity continues to cover the same amount ... 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 »

The law of inertia states that an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion with the same speed and in the same direction unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. The law of inertia is sometim... More »

When an object reaches its terminal velocity, it can no longer accelerate, so its acceleration becomes zero, and it falls at a constant speed. As an object falls freely through the air, it has two forces acting upon it: ... More »

A stationary object on a uniform, flat surface requires the same amount of force to push or pull. As long as the pushing or pulling force is strong enough to overcome the static friction force, the object will move. More »
