- Define the following terms: uniform motion, non-uniform
- State and explain whether an object is in motion
with reference to another object.
- Understand that motion is measured over a time
- Recognize that periodic motion can be used to
- Compare uniform and non-uniform motion.
- Physics is a systematic, organized, and logical
science. It is necessary to have a structured approach
when solving any type of problem in science.
- Motion is relative to the position of the observer.
Different observers may perceive the motion of an
object in entirely different ways.
- An object is in motion if its position changes
with respect to an observer.
- Motion is measured over a time interval such as
s, min, h.
- An object that undergoes periodic motion (pendulum,
recording timer, stroboscope) can be used to measure
time and may be calibrated against a standard measurement
- Motion can be either uniform or non-uniform.
