Q:

# What is non-unfiorm motion?

A:

In the study of physics, non-uniform motion occurs, when an object travels an unequal distance in an equal amount of time. An example would be a car that travels 30 miles during the first hour of a trip and 50 miles during the second hour.

Uniform motion, in contrast, involves an object that covers an equal distance in an equal amount of time. An example might be a train that covers 20 miles per hour for an extended period. Because it may change at any given moment, the velocity of non-uniform motion can only be measured at a specific instant in time.

Inertia is the tendency for an object to remain in motion or at rest unless it is acted upon by an outside force. In the field of physics, this concept is referred to as Newton's first law of motion.

The path taken by a flying object in motion on the surface of the Earth is called a parabola. A parabola is a symmetrical arc, and the trajectory of flying objects with negligible air resistance in a gravitational field, as on the surface of the Earth, follows this path.

Force is any influence to an object which changes its motion, while motion itself is the change in position of an object in relation to is speed, location and acceleration. There cannot be movement without force used against an object to set it in motion.
