The nature of uniform motion for a velocity-time graph is graphed as a horizontal straight line. Uniform motion is unaffected by acceleration (line does not curve), which means that it goes up or down in a constant rate on a position-time graph. Velocity= the slope of a position-time graph. So, if the motion is constant on a position-time graph then the velocity of the uniform motion is constant on a velocity-time graph. Lauren "Physics above all!"
The velocity of an object in uniform circular motion is constant, because, velocity is the rate of change of position at a given time or speed.
If constant motion means constant velocity then, total distance / total time = avg velocity => avg speed constant velocity => avg velocity = velocity
constant velocity of motion is called uniform motion.
Constant velocity including the constant zero velocity.
It is motion in a straight line at a constant velocity.
It can be in equilibrium if in constant motion (constant velocity) as no forces are acting on it (no acceleration)
It is called uniform motion because the object covers equal distances in equal intervals of time which is why it has a constant velocity.
the object is on uniform motion
- Uniform Linear motion: with constant velocity. - Non Uniform Linear motion: with variable velocity.
Velocity is a vector with magnitude (speed) and direction. Since the linear velocity changes direction the speed is constant but the velocity is NOT constant.
Objects moving in uniform circular motion will have a constant speed, and two objects with the same acceleration have a constant velocity.
Well, technically yes, and we even know the magnitude of the constant acceleration.If velocity is constant, that tells you that acceleration is zero, which sounds likea constant to us.
Position-Time GraphYou can graph motion on a position vs time graph. On a position vs time graph, position is on the y-axis and time is on the x-axis. If the velocity is constant, the graph will be a straight line and the slope is average velocity. If the motion is accelerating, the graph will be a curved line.Velocity-Time GraphYou can also graph motion on a Velocity-Time graph. On a velocity vs time graph, velocity is on the y-axis, time is on the x-axis. If the graph is a straight line, velocity is constant and the slope is average acceleration. Also, on a velocity vs time graph, the area under the line is displacement.Refer to the related link for illustrations of the different graphs of motion and their meanings.
Yes, balanced forces don't have any motion, but I'm not sure if they would have a constant velocity.
No. The direction keeps changing. Constant velocity means constant speed in a straight line.
Well, we know that velocity describes the speed and direction of motion, so you can't change either of those. We don't usually think of 'position' as a characteristic of motion, but if we try hard to please you, then we might observe that the position changes while velocity remains constant.
Assuming the graph is for displacement versus time, the motion should be constant velocity. If velocity versus time motion is constant acceleration
No. An unbalanced force causes motion, but balanced forces keep a body in motion in a straight line at constant velocity, or at rest at constant 0 velocity.
A changing velocity can maintain constant speed if the motion is circular. The constant change in direction is a change in velocity, even if the speed is constant.
Anything with constant velocity is moving at a constant speed in a straight line. Neither of these characteristics describes the motion of the moon.
No.. this is impossible. Velocity must have a constant direction and speed to remain constant, it may have a constant speed, but the direction in a circle constantly changes. If it suddenly were to have constant direction, then the motion would go off on a tangent.. making it linear motion, not circular. In circular motion, velocity constantly changes. Always.
No. The definition of acceleration is change in velocity.
