DIFFERENT TYPES OF MOVEMENT / MOTION
V.Ryan © 2017
 
LINEAR MOTION
Linear motion is movement in a straight line and in one direction. One of the best examples of this is a train / locomotive. When a train runs along a track, it is in a straight line and heading in one direction.
 
 
 
 
ROTARY MOTION
This is movement following a circular path, around a fixed point. A very good example of this is a bicycle wheel. The wheel rotates around a centre point.
 
 
 
 
OSCILLATING MOTION
Oscillating motion occurs when an object swings left and then right (or vise-versa), from a fixed point. A very good example of this is a classic pendulum clock
 
 
 
 
RECIPROCATING MOTION
Reciprocating motion is a repetitive movement left to right OR up and down. A good example of this type or motion is a piston, such as found in an engine.
