Quiz: trivia questions on motion! Motion is seen as the change of position of something at a given rate over time. Motion exists in four types of speed, which are rotary, oscillating, linear, and reciprocating. Motion is seen as a product of distance divided by time. In the quiz provided, you will be expected to show just how much you know about motion and work out some mathematical problems. Do give it a try!

A car slows down as it approaches a red light.
A car speeds up as the light turns green.
A car makes a right hand turn at a constant speed.
A car maintains its speed as it travels down a straight road.
The object is speeding up.
The objects is slowing down.
The object is maintaining a constant speed.
The object is not moving.
The object is speeding up.
The object is slowing down.

Average speed = total time ÷ total distance
Average speed = total distance ÷ total time
Average speed = total distance x total time
Average speed = total distance + total time
Average speed = total distance - total time
