No. The linear velocity can never be equal when speed is constant. This is because direction is changing and therefore linear velocity changes.

What are types of linear motion?

- Uniform Linear motion: with constant velocity. - Non Uniform Linear motion: with variable velocity.

Can uniform velocity appear in circular motion?

No.. this is impossible. Velocity must have a constant direction and speed to remain constant, it may have a constant speed, but the direction in a circle constantly changes. If it suddenly were to have constant direction, then the motion would go off on a tangent.. making it linear motion, not circular. In circular motion, velocity constantly changes. Always.

Uniform linear motion and uniform circular motion?

Linear motion (also called rectillinear motion) is motion along a straight line. Uniform linear motion ,which constant velocity is zero. when a body (or an object) moves in a circle , it is called circular motion. Motion in a circle is circular motion.

Does velocity of an object remain constant in uniform circular motion?

Velocity is a vector with magnitude (speed) and direction. Since the linear velocity changes direction the speed is constant but the velocity is NOT constant.

Is v linear?

If v (velocity) is constant, then it's straight (linear). If v is changing due to acceleration, then it is a curve (non-linear)

Under what conditions is average velocity equal to instantaneous velocity?

When there is no acceleration or when there is constant acceleration. When either of these cases is present, the graph of velocity versus time will be linear. When there is linear velocity, the average velocity will equal the instantaneous velocity at any point on the graph.

What is uniform in uniform circular motion?

The speed of the object in motion, the radius of the curve in which it moves, the force acting on it to keep it moving in a circle, its angular velocity, and its centripetal acceleration, are all constant. Notice that its linear velocity is not constant, because the direction of its motion is always changing. Although I guess you'd have to say that its velocity is constant in polar coordinates, because the radial and tangential components are constant.

Is there is any linear or Circular motion equation or just the motion in which acceleration of body changes at constant velocity?

The question is, if not a maelstrom, certainly a melange at least.Especially noteworthy is the part where "acceleration of a body changesat constant velocity".Acceleration is the rate of change of velocity. If velocity is constant, then there isno acceleration. If velocity changes at a constant rate, then acceleration is constant.Velocity would have to change at a rate that changes, in order to have a changingacceleration.Now, what is it you're looking for ? A "linear or circular motion equation" ? There areoodles of them, describing the relationship among the position, displacement, speed,velocity, and acceleration, in one, two, or three dimensions, in rectangular, polar, andspherical coordinates, for linear motion, and an entire separate set of equations forcircular motion.

Relation between linear velocity and angular velocity?

linear velocity= radius* angular velocity

What is movement that occurs along a straight line?

Motion with uniform velocity. * * * * * There is absolutely no reason for the velocity - or even speed - to remain constant. It is linear motion an that is all that there is to it.

What is uniformly accelerating linear motion?

Motion implies momentum, which implies velocity. Linear implies a straight line. Accelerating implies changing velocity. And uniform implies constancy. So, when an object moves in a straight line and accelerates at a constant rate, you have uniformly accelerating linear motion.

What is the difference between uniform linear motion an uniform circular motion?

linear is which is on a straight path and circular motion is which has a curved path. *In a uniform linear motion,the velocity is constant and the acceleration is zero.So,uniform linear motion is an unaccelerated motion. *In uniform circular motion the velocity can be variable although the speed is uniform.So,it is an accelerated motion.

What is the difference between linear velocity and angular velocity?

linear velocity is a change of speed in a linear fashion. Angular speed is the rate of change of angle with respect to time. These two are convertible in a case of a circle motion. the lenght of an arc is l = RO. where O is the angle. hence v= l/t and therefore v=RA where A = O/t.

What is uniform linear motion?

That means that something moves at a constant velocity: i.e., without changing direction, and without changing its speed.

What is the acceleration?

Acceleration is the change in velocity with time, for linear (constant) acceleration it is calculated by: (End Speed -Start Speed)/time taken

The rate of change of any nonlinear function is constant?

No. Only a linear function has a constant rate of change.No. Only a linear function has a constant rate of change.No. Only a linear function has a constant rate of change.No. Only a linear function has a constant rate of change.

Does a circle represent a function in linear functions?

a) A circle is not the graph of a function. b) A circle is not linear.

What is the difference between velocity and linear motion?

Linear motion is a motion in a straight line but velocity can travel in any direction the equation for linear motion is and velocity is the rate of change of positions

Is a circle non-linear?

No, but it is non-linear.

Formula fo linear velocity?

Linear velocity is the change in distance divided by the change in time (ΔV/Δt)

What is the equation for linear momentum?

Linear momentum = mass*velocity.

What is the formula for the angular velocity?

There are several, what is it that you want to calculate? The "natural" units for angular velocity are radians/second. The relationship between linear velocity and angular velocity is especially simple in this case: linear velocity (at the edge) = angular velocity x radius.
