• 1.

### Identify the type of motion.Car moving along a straight road.

• A.

Reciprocating motion

• B.

Rotary motion

• C.

Linear motion

• D.

Oscillating motion

C. Linear motion
Explanation
The given correct answer is linear motion because when a car moves along a straight road, it follows a straight path without any rotation or oscillation. Linear motion refers to the movement of an object in a straight line, which is exactly what is described in the question.

Rate this question:

• 2.

### Fill in the blanks.Rotary motion is ___________.

• A.

Back and forth motion along a straight line.

• B.

Back and forth motion in a circle.

• C.

Movement in a straight line.

• D.

Motion in a circle.

D. Motion in a circle.
Explanation
Rotary motion refers to the movement in a circle. Unlike back and forth motion along a straight line or movement in a straight line, rotary motion involves an object or body rotating or spinning around a fixed axis or point. This type of motion is commonly observed in various mechanical systems, such as wheels, gears, and turbines, where objects rotate continuously in circular paths.

### Fill in the blank.Oscillation is ___________.

• A.

Movement in a straight line.

• B.

Back and forth motion along a straight line.

• C.

Back and forth motion about a pivot point.

• D.

Motion in a circle.

C. Back and forth motion about a pivot point.
Explanation
Oscillation refers to a repetitive back and forth motion about a pivot point. This type of motion is characterized by a continuous swinging or swinging-like movement that occurs in a regular pattern. It involves a movement that alternates between two extreme positions, with the object or system returning to its original position after completing one cycle. This motion can be observed in various phenomena, such as a pendulum swinging, a vibrating guitar string, or the movement of a swing.

### Identify the type of motion.A turning ceiling fan.

• A.

Linear motion

• B.

Rotary motion

• C.

Oscillating motion

• D.

Reciprocating motion

B. Rotary motion
Explanation
A turning ceiling fan exhibits rotary motion because it rotates around an axis.

Rate this question:

• 5.

### Identify the cam used.

• A.

Pear shaped cam.

• B.

Circular cam.

• C.

Snail cam.

• D.

Eccentric cam.

C. Snail cam.
Explanation
There is a sudden drop in the follower. This is a unique feature of a snail cam.

Rate this question:

• 6.

### Based on the output movement. Identify the cam used.

• A.

Eccentric cam.

• B.

Heart shaped cam.

• C.

Pear shaped cam.

• D.

Snail cam

D. Snail cam
Explanation
The sudden closure in the eyes indicate that a snail cam is used. The unique feature in the snail cam is the sudden drop in the output movement.

Rate this question:

• 7.

### Identify the motion conversion for the following video.

• A.

Rotary motion to linear motion

• B.

Rotary motion to reciprocating motion

• C.

Linear motion to oscillating motion

• D.

Linear motion to rotary motion

B. Rotary motion to reciprocating motion
Explanation
The video demonstrates a conversion from rotary motion to reciprocating motion. This means that the initial motion in the video is circular or rotational, but it is then converted into a back-and-forth or linear motion.

Rate this question:

• 8.

### There are 2 types of motion conversions in the following video. Identify them.

• A.

Rotary motion to oscillating motion, rotary motion to rotary motion.

• B.

Rotary motion to linear motion, rotary motion to oscillating motion.

• C.

Oscillating motion to reciprocating motion, rotary motion to rotary motion.

• D.

Rotary motion to reciprocating motion, rotary motion to rotary motion.

D. Rotary motion to reciprocating motion, rotary motion to rotary motion.
Explanation
First part of the video shows the flying birds. Its is a conversion of rotary motion (turning the crank to reciprocating motion (wings flap). The second part of the video shows the circling notes. (It is a conversion of rotary motion to rotary motion.
