Mechanics is a branch of physics which deals with the study of motion of a particle. Motion is

change in position of the object with respect to time. Different kinds of motion are translational,

vibrational and rotational. In translational motion, a particle moves from one point to another

point along a straight line. In rotational motion particles of the body describes concentric circles

about axis of rotation. In vibrational motion particle performs to and fro motion about mean

position. In this chapter we shall confine ourselves to the study of motion of objects along a

straight line, also called as rectilinear motion.

Motion: If an object changes its position w.r.t. its surroundings with time, then it is called in

motion.

Rest: If an object does not changes its position w.r.t. its surrounding with time, then it is called at

rest.

[Note: Rest and motion are relative states. It means an object which is at rest in one frame of

reference can be in motion in another frame of reference at the same time.]

Point Mass Object: An object can be considered as a point mass object, if the distance travelled

by it in motion is very large in comparison to its dimensions.

Types of Motion:

(1) One Dimensional Motion: If only one out of the three coordinates specifying the position of

the object changes with respect to time, then the motion is called 1-D motion e.g. motion of a

train along a straight line, an object falling under gravity etc.

(2) Two Dimensional Motion: If only two out of three coordinates specifying the position of the

object changes with respect to time, then the motion is called 2-D motion e.g. A circular motion.

(3) Three Dimensional Motion: If all the three coordinates specifying the position of the object

changes with respect to time, then the motion is called 3-D motion e.g. a flying bird, a flying

aero plane, random motion of gas molecules etc.

Path length (or Distance):

It is the actual distance travelled by the body during its motion. It is a scalar quantity.

Displacement:

The shortest distance between the initial and final position of a body during its motion is

called its displacement. It is a vector quantity.

Displacement =

42 32 25 5 km 2

(b) The path length (or distance) and displacement are equal only if the object doesnt

change its direction during its motion. In all the other cases the path length is greater than the

magnitude of the displacement.]

Average Speed:

Average speed of a particle is defined as the total path length travelled divided by total

time interval during which the motion has taken place.

Average speed=

Total time interval

(b) The speed of a particle can be zero or positive but never negative.]

Average Velocity:

Average velocity is defined as the change in displacement divided by the time interval in

which the displacement occurs.

Average velocity=

Displacement

Time interval

(b) The average velocity of a particle can be zero, positive or negative.]

Question: The average speed of an object is greater than or equal to magnitude of average velocity over

a given time interval. Explain.

Problem: A car moves at a constant speed of 60 km/hr for 1 km and 40 km/hr for next 1 km.

What is the average speed of the car?

Average speed=

It is the rate of change of position with respect to time at a particular instant.

Or,

When an object is travelling with variable speed, then its speed at a given instant of time is called

its instantaneous speed.

dx

dt

[Note: The speedometer of an automobile measures the instantaneous speed of the automobile]

Uniform motion:

The motion of a body is said to be uniform if it covers equal distances in equal interval of time.

Non-uniform or Variable Speed:

If an object covers unequal distance in equal intervals of time, then its speed is called nonuniform or variable speed.

Acceleration: The rate of change of velocity with respect to time is called acceleration.

Acceleration=

Change in velocity

time

[Note: Acceleration can be positive, zero or negative. Positive acceleration means velocity

increasing with time, zero acceleration means velocity is uniform while negative acceleration

(retardation) means velocity decreasing with time]

(c) A ball is dropped from a building of height h and it reaches after t seconds on earth. From

the same building if two balls are thrown (one upwards and other downwards) with the same

velocity u and they reach the earth surface after t1 and t2 seconds respectively, then t t1t2 .

(d) When a body is dropped freely from the top of the tower and another body is projected

horizontally from the same point, both will reach the ground at the same time.]
