In the world of mechanics, there are four basic types of motion. These four are rotary, oscillating, linear and reciprocating. Each one moves in a slightly different way and each type of achieved using different mechanical means that help us understand linear motion and motion control.
Also, what are the two types of motion in physics?
Types of motion. Simple harmonic motion – (e.g., that of a pendulum). Linear motion – motion which follows a straight linear path, and whose displacement is exactly the same as its trajectory. Rotary motion – a motion about a fixed point.
What are the three different types of motion?
There are three main categories: Linear Motion is when all of a body moves in a line (straight or curved) with all parts moving in the same direction. Angular Motion is when a body or part of it moves in a circle (or part of) about a point called the axis of rotation.
