Motion Quizzes & Trivia

How much time will it take a vehicle to travel 50 miles at 60 miles per hour? If you study and take this quiz, you will learn. When something is in motion, it is moving from one place to another. Some things can be in action and remain in the same place as the unfurling of a flag in the wind. The flag itself moves in the wind, but the pole keeps it from flying away. A football being passed from one player to another is in motion from the release to the catch. Find out how much you know by taking the quiz.
