Which of the following is an example of uniformly accelerated motion in a plane?
(a) Motion of a particle in a plane
(b) Motion of a particle in a circle
(c) Motion of a pendulum
(d) Motion of a spring
I got this question in my homework.
Question is from Motion in a Plane with Constant Acceleration topic in chapter Motion in a Plane of Physics – Class 11
Select the correct answer from above options
Interview Questions and Answers, Database Interview Questions and Answers for Freshers and Experience
Correct choice is (a) Motion of a particle in a plane
For explanation: From the given options, the only motion that can possibly have a uniformly accelerated motion in a plane is that of a particle. In circular motion the direction of the acceleration keeps changing and in a pendulum and in a spring, both the magnitude and directions keep changing.
