Motion in Straight Line

Motion pervades the entire universe. Movement of objects happen in many ways like translation, rotation, revolution, etc. In this topic, we develop the basic concepts of motion like position, velocity and acceleration by confining ourselves to rectiliear (or straight line) translational motion. We will extesively use mathematical concepts of vectors and calculus and hence, these become the prerequisites for this topic. 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.
