Translatory Motion

If an object like a vehicle, moves in a line in such a way that every point of the object moves through the same distance in the same time, then the motion of the object is called translatory motion. Example: When a cycle moves from a position 1 to the position 2.   The motion of an apple falling from a tree.  The motion of . . .

Types of Translatory Motion

Translatory Motion can be of Two types:  Rectilinear Motion  Curvilinear Motion . . .

Rectilinear Motion

If a motion of a body is along a straight line, it is said to be the rectilinear or linear motion. Example: A stone falling straight towards the surface of the earth A car moving on a straight road. A coin moving over a carom board.  . . .

Some examples supports rectilinear motion

The motion of a bullet fired from a gun (up to some distance). March past of the soldiers on a straight road. A boy or a car running on a straight road. . . .

Curvilinear Motion

If a motion of a body is along a curved path it is said to be the curvilinear motion example: The motion of a cycle while taking a turn on the road. A car moving along a curved path. . . .

Rotatory Motion

A body is said to be in rotatory motion. If it moves about a fixed axis Example:  The blades of a fan A spinning top A spinning wheel or a potter's wheel A merry-go-round rotation of the earth about its own axis A rotatory motion is different from a translatory motion, because in rotatory motion, different parts of the obj . . .

Mixed Motion

A body can have more than type of motion. Such a motion is called mixed motion. Example: The wheels of a moving train have both the translatory as well as the rotatory motions.   . . .
