Detailed Solution for Test: Motion & Measurement of Distances - Question 4
  • Oscillatory motion takes place when the restoring force acting on the body is directly proportional to its displacement from its equilibrium position. In practice, oscillatory motion eventually comes to rest due to damping or frictional forces.
  • Non-periodic motion: The motion which does not repeat itself after a regular interval of time is called non-periodic motion. Examples: A footballer running on a field, application of brakes in a moving vehicle, a ball rolling the ground gradually slows down finally stops, the motion of tides in the sea, etc.
  • A type of motion in which all parts of the body move the same distance in a given time is known as translatory motion. Translatory motion can be of two types: rectilinear and curvilinear.
