Motion Quizzes & Trivia

Did you know that Buddhism managed to summarize an entire field of physics in only one word?! It’s called karma. You may recognize the statement from a movie, but it is actually true. Newton's Third Law of Motion states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. And that’s not all he managed to pull on motion.

“What are the ‘imperceptible’ human motions, and how many are there?”, “What set of principles describe the physical reality at an atomic level of matter?”, “What is the Heisenberg uncertainty principle?”, and “What part of physics deals with the study of motion at a macroscopic level?” are just some of the questions from these quizzes that even Newton stopped to ponder. And so, if you think you can take him, start by taking on these quizzes.

What is the interval in which the cart is moving forward at constant speed? The displacement-time graph below represents the motion of a cart initially moving forward along a straight line. 
The answer is 3. The interval in which the cart is moving forward at constant speed is BC. This question has to do with graphine motion and time displacement. Graphing motion is very important in physics. Physics is the scientific study of matter and
What would that students average speed be? If a student was walking a distance of 150 meters in 30 seconds.
The right answer is 5 meters / sec as :Average speed = Total distance / Total timeAverage speed = 150 meters / 30 sec ( 150 / 30= 5 )Therefore average speed = 5 meters / sec.Another method30 : 150so 1 : 5
