Question 2.
Explain the terms uniform and non-uniform motions.
Uniform motion :

1. If a body covers equal distances in equal intervals of time, assuming the direction of motion is constant, then the motion is said to be uniform motion.
2. The motion of a body is said to be uniform when its velocity is constant.
3. The s -1 graph for a uniform motion is a straight line.
4. Ex : Motion of hands in a clock.

Non-uniform motion :

1. If a body covers unequal distances in equal intervals of time, assuming the direction of motion is constant, then the motion is said to be non-uniform motion.
2. A body is said to be in non-uniform motion if its velocity changes with time.
3. The s -1 graph for non-uniform motion is not a straight line.

5. Then we calculate average speed for a very short time interval encompassing the time at an instant t3 which is so short interval, that value of average speed would not change materially if it was made even shorter.
6. The instantaneous speed is represented by the slope of the curve at a given instant of time.
