# What is the difference between uniform and constant motion?

The body can be said to be moving with constant velocity if it travels on a straight path with constant speed. When a body performs motion with uniform velocity, magnitude of the velocity will remain same but direction may change.

Moreover, is constant velocity and uniform motion same?

Motion is typically described in terms of displacement, distance, velocity, acceleration, time and speed. The definition of uniform motion is that the object is supposed to cover equal distances in equal intervals of time. This means that the object in motion will have constant velocity.

What are some examples of uniform motion?

Such a motion is uniform in nature. Eg: A car moving on a straight road without any change in its velocity is one of the examples. A Ball rolling on a floor without changing its velocity is again an example of uniform Motion.

Is constant acceleration uniform motion?

This is called uniform circular motion. No, when a body is under uniform acceleration doesn't mean that it is under uniform motion. Uniform acceleration means, that the velocity of body is changing with a constant rate. On the other hand, uniform motion means that the body is in motion with constant velocity.
