Motion in a Plane

After the topic of Motion in a straight line, we will discuss the concepts of Motion in a Plane. As one can imagine, a particle moving in a plane (like a chalk moves on a blackboard) can describe more complex paths compared to a particle moving in a straight line (like a train move on tracks). Therefore, we will extrapolate the concepts from straight line motion to better suit it for planar motion. We will also discuss it's real life applications in the topics of Projectile and circular motion. Hope you enjoy the chapter.


This video has been prepared to address the curriculum requirements of 11th Class students. The concepts discussed will also find applications in several competitive examinations like JEE-Mains, NEET along with board examinations.

He has 2 years of experience in education both as a content creator as well as a teacher. He believes that the words of Einstein, "Imagination is more important than knowledge", perfectly describe the core essence of this subject. He expects the students to thoroughly grasp the "concepts" first and only then proceed to problem solving. The content he creates is in-depth, detailed and exhaustive.
