Question 1:

Classify the following as motion along a straight line, circular or oscillatory motion:

1. Motion of your hands while running.
2. Motion of a horse pulling a cart on a straight road.
3. Motion of a child in a merry-go-round.
4. Motion of a child on a see-saw.
5. Motion of the hammer of an electric bell.
6. Motion of a train on a straight bridge.

1. Motion of your hands while running – Oscillatory motion.

This motion takes place when the restoring force acting on the body is directly proportional to its displacement from its equilibrium position.

1. Motion of a horse pulling a cart on a straight road – Straight line motion.

Linear motion is a one dimensional motion along a straight line, and can therefore be described mathematically using only one spatial dimension. As Showing in Images is a Horse Pulling a Cart on a Straight …
1. Motion of a child in a merry-go-round – Circular motion.

Circular motion is a movement of an object along the circumference of a circle or rotation along a circular path.

1. Motion of a child on a see-saw – Oscillatory motion.
1. Motion of the hammer of an electric bell – Oscillatory motion. As Showing in Images is a Hammer of an Electric Bell
1. Motion of a train on a straight bridge – Straight line motion. As Showing in Images is a Train on a Straight Bridge
