- 1. K.V. Aizawl 15 KINEMATICS *rest and Motion are relative terms, nobody can exist in a state of absolute rest or of absolute motion. *One dimensional motion:- The motion of an object is said to be one dimensional motion if only one out of three coordinates specifying the position of the object change with time. In such a motion an object move along a straight line path. *Two dimensional motion:- The motion of an object is said to be two dimensional motion if two out of three coordinates specifying the position of the object change with time. In such motion the object moves in a plane. *Three dimensional motion:- The motion is said to be three dimensional motion if all the three coordinates specifying the position of an object change with respect to time ,in such a motion an object moves in space. *The magnitude of displacement is less than or equal to the actual distance travelled by the object in the given time interval. Displacement ≤ Actual distance *Speed:- It is rate of change of distance covered by the body with respect to time. Speed = Distance travelled /time taken Speed is a scalar quantity .Its unit is meter /sec. and dimensional formula is [M0 L1 T-1 ] .It is positive or zero but never negative. *Uniform Speed:- If an object covers equal distances in equal intervals of time than the speed of the moving object is called uniform speed. In this type of motion, position – time graph is always a straight line. *Instantaneous speed:-The speed of an object at any particular instant of time is called instantaneous speed. In this measurement, the time ∆t→0.

Aizawl 16 When a body is moving with uniform speed its instantaneous speed = Average speed = uniform speed. *Velocity:- The rate of change of position of an object in a particular direction with respect to time is called velocity. It is equal to the displacement covered by an object per unit time. Velocity =Displacement /Time Velocity is a vector quantity, its SI unit is meter per sec. Its dimensional formula is [M0 L1 T-1 ]. It may be negative, positive or zero. *When a body moves in a straight line then the average speed and average velocity are equal. *Acceleration:- The rate of change of velocity of an object with respect to time is called its acceleration. Acceleration = Change in velocity /time taken It is a vector quantity, Its SI unit is meter/ sec.2 and dimension is [M0 L1 T-2 ], It may be positive ,negative or zero. *Positive Acceleration:- If the velocity of an object increases with time, its acceleration is positive . *Negative Acceleration :-If the velocity of an object decreases with time, its acceleration is negative . The negative acceleration is also called retardation or deacceleration. *Formulas of uniformly accelerated motion along straight line:- For accelerated motion, For deceleration motion V = u + at v = u - at S = ut + 1 /2 at2 S = ut - 1 /2 at2 V2 =u2 + 2as V2 = u2 - 2as Sn = u + a /2(2n- 1) Sn = u - a /2( 2n- 1)
- 3. K.V. Aizawl 17 *Free fall :- In the absence of the air resistance all bodies fall with the same acceleration towards earth from a small height. This is called free fall. The acceleration with which a body falls is called gravitational acceleration (g).Its value is 9.8 m/sec2 . *Relative Motion:- The rate of change of distance of one object with respect to the other is called relative velocity. The relative velocity of an object B with respect to the object A when both are in motion is the rate of change of position of object B with respect to the object A. *Relative velocity of object A with respect to object B ⃗ AB = ⃗ A - ⃗ B When both objects are move in same direction, then the relative velocity of object B with respect to the object A ⃗ BA = ⃗ B - ⃗ A When the object B moves in opposite direction of object A . ⃗ BA = ⃗ B + ⃗ A When VA and VB are incident to each other at angle Θ VAB = (V2 A + V2 B – 2VAVBCos Θ)1/2 *Scalars :- The quantities which have magnitude only but no direction. For example : mass, length, time, speed , temperature etc. *Vectors :- The quantities which have magnitude as well as direction and obeys vector laws of addition, multiplication etc. For examples : Displacement, velocity, acceleration, force , momentum etc.
