Kinematics is the sector of mechanics that defines the motion of points, systems, or objects. The Kinematics in NEET is approximately 3 to 4% and students can also imagine direct questions from the section which makes it one of the best scoring topics. To very useful students in their preparation, we are giving the revision notes of Kinematics that subsists of all the major formulas and concepts, and facts. 

  • The definition of dimensions, formulas, graphs is the best score in this part and these notes will fruitful for you in retaining the maximum formulae and facts. Check NEET Physics Syllabus
  • Some of the major sub-topics from where students can expect a maximum of 1 question are Distance, Speed, Velocity, Acceleration, and Motion in a Straight Line.

In this article, we will also provide some quick notes with all the important details so that you can quickly go through the entire topic. You can also get some sample questions along with tips and tricks to solve those questions.

What is the Frame of Reference?

The frame of reference is a set of axes that are used to mention or specific the position of the object in the space. The coordinate process has a set of rectangular axes that subsists of 3 mutually perpendicular axes X, Y, Z. The main point at which these 3 axes intersect each other is called Reference point or Origin Point

Kind Motion in a Straight Line

Kind Motion in a Straight Line and its types

  • Before understanding the idea of Motion of Straight Line we need to comprehend that what is Position and Motion.
  • The position of an object is very significant to describe the motion of that object. The situation of the object is the arrangement of the axes from the reference point.

For instance, if you contemplate the above image then the position of point A from the O Point i.e. a reference point can be defined as,

Kind Motion in a Straight Line and its types

Motion: The item or body is said to be moving if it changes its situation with time and respect to its surroundings. The portrayal of the motion of an object should be possible with the support of a position-time chart.

Position Time Graph for Uniform Motion

At the point, an object moves along the straight line and covers the same distance in an equal interval of time then the motion is known as uniform motion.

Position Time Graph for Uniform Motion

Position Time Graph for Non-Uniform Motion

At the point when an item covers the equivalent distance in equal time or equal distance in equivalent time-stretch then it is known as Non-Uniform Motion.

Position Time Graph for Non-Uniform Motion

Sample Questions on Motion in Straight Line

Question: 3 sec time is taken by 2 trains to pass each other while going the other way yet just 2.5 sec if the speed of the one is expanded by 50%. What will be the time that one could take to pass the other while going a similar way at their unique speed?

  1. 10 sec
  2. 12 sec
  3. 15 sec
  4. 18 sec

Acceleration and types

What are the Acceleration and its categories?

  • Acceleration is characterized by.
  • The amount of change in the velocity of an object is known as acceleration
  • Acceleration and its categories
  • The Acceleration SI units are m/s2
  • The Acceleration is a vector quantity
  • Dimensions of Acceleration are M0LT-2

Types of Acceleration

Uniform Acceleration: When the greatness and direction of the acceleration of a body stay steady during movement it is called uniform speeding up.

Non-Uniform Acceleration: When the size and course of the increasing speed of a body changes during the movement are called Non-Uniform Acceleration.

The 3 calculations of motion for an object with constant acceleration are provided below.

  • v= u+at
  • s= ut+1/2 at2
  • v2=u2+2as

Basics of Vectors

Remember the Basic Concepts of Vectors

There are two sorts of Quantities in vector for example Scalar or Vector

Scalar Quantity: Physical quantity that can't be related with bearing yet has extent is known as a scalar Quantity.

Vector Quantity: Physical quantity that has both bearing and extent and observes or submits to triangle law of expansion is known as a vector quantity.

Kinds of Vectors

  • Unit Vector – Unite vector is a vector that has unit magnitude and focuses a specific way. In the figure given beneath, the unit vector can be addressed as Unit Vector
