Introducing Motion in Straight Line class 11th Part 1: Mind Maps, One-Shots, and Formulas!

  • How does motion in a straight line work?
  • Linear motion types
  1. Moving in a straight line at constant velocity or zero acceleration
  2. Variable velocity and non-zero acceleration in non-uniform linear motion

It is recommended that you do not confuse linear motion with general motion. Linear motion has only one dimension, as we discussed earlier. However, motion generally has both magnitude and direction, i.e. the position and velocity of an object are described using vector quantities.

  • A straight line of uniform motion
  • Motion in a straight line that is non-uniform
  • Formulas for straight-line motion

A straight line motion is described by the following formulas:
