Motion parallel to earths surface is what?

horizontal force not horizontal motion

The motion of an object parallel to the Earth's surface is?


Why doesn't gravity play a role on a balls speed when it rolls on a horizontal surface?

Gravity pulls downwards and the horizontal surface prevents any motion downwards. Since it has no horizontal component it plays no role in purely horizontal motion.

What is horizontal motion?

"horizontal motion is the most common type of motion"

Horizontal force exerted on one surface by another when the surface are not in relative motion?

the static friction force curse McGinity

True or false Motion parallel to earths surface is vertical motion Motion parallel to earths surface is vertical motion?

False. Consider a car moving on the road, along the earth's surface. That is considered to be Vx or Horizontal motion or velocity. If the car were to move perpendicular to the earth's surface that would be Vy or Vertical motion and velocity.

What is the difference between horizontal and vertical motion?

Our jumping is a vertical motion, while walking is a horizontal motion. Exercises are done by both horizontal and vertical motion.

What is horizontal motion vertical motion?

Horizontal motion is motion that moves back and forth and vertical motion moves up and down.

How is the motion in the vertical direction affected by motion in the horizontal direction?

the horizontal motion and the vertical motion are independent of each other

Why horizontal motion is constant?

Horizontal motion is only constant when it is not being affected by any forces, e.g. the horizontal motion of a projectile after it's shot.

What are horizontal motion and vertical motion?

horizontal is side to side vertical is up and down

Is the vertical motion of a projectile dependent on its horizontal motion?

No, the angle of the vector determines both the horizontal and vertical motion.

What is the motion parallel to the ground?

horizontal motion

Why a periodic motion may not be an oscillatory motion?

periodic motion is a motion of body wich repeats itself in equal intervals of time , but a oscillatory motion is a periodic motion which is about a mean position . so all periodic motions could not be a oscillatory motion , but all oscillatory motions are periodic in nature.

What type of motion describes the horizontal component of a projectile?

The type of motion that describes the horizontal component of a projectile is horizontal projectile motion. It is influenced by the downward force of gravity.

What is the amount of horizontal force required to start in motion an object sitting on a horizontal surface must be great than what?

multiply coefficient of static friction by object mass

What is the horizontal motion of an object?

Motion parallel to the ground.

What is the difference between oscillation and periodic motion?

Oscillatory motion is also called vibratory motion while periodic motion is a motion which is repeat itself after a specific interval. Periodic motion may be rotatory or vibratory.

Is the motion of the celling fan a periodic motion?

if a motion repeats it self after equal intervals of time it is called a periodic motion, if u understand this definition u will know that a fan is undergoing the periodic motion as if of its blades in proper words the blades of an electric fan is a periodic motion

Examples of periodic motion?

motion of a pendulum.

Which motion is used in clock?

periodic motion

DOES a pendulum have a periodic motion?

In actual conditions, a pendulum's motion can be seen as periodic, but decaying.

Does a straight horizontal line indicate uniform motion?

no, a straight horizontal line doesn't indicates uniform motion

What will the motion of the plane be if it is flying in a horizontal line?

linear motion

Which of these components of projectile motion is not influenced by gravity?

horizontal motion
