LINEAR MOTION.

Introduction

Study of motion is divided into two;

Kinematics
Dynamics

In kinematics forces causing motion are disregarded while dynamics deals with motion of objects and the forces causing them.

Displacement

Distance moved by a body in a specified direction is called displacement. It is denoted by letter‘s’ and has both magnitude and direction. Distance is the movement from one point to another. The Si unit for displacement is the metre (m).
