# Kinematics Quizzes, Questions & Answers

André-Marie Ampère was a French physicist and mathematician who is generally regarded as one of the main founders of the science of classical electromagnetism, which he referred to as "electrodynamics".

Among others, he is the inventor of the SI unit of measurement of electric current, but you will recognize him by the ampere, which was named after him. Nevertheless, what we truly should thank him for is kinematics.

Named by him from the Greek name for motion “kinema”, kinematics provides us with the language and the mathematical tools to describe motion, be it the motion of a charging pachyderm or a charged particle.

“Into what can the study of kinematics be abstracted?”, “What can be used to describe the movements of components of a mechanical system?”, and “What are kinematic chains?”. These questions, if answered correctly, will help you find the key to movement.
