## Uniform Motion

the motion of a point such that its speed ν is constant. The distance traversed in the time t by a point in uniform motion is s = vt. When a rigid body undergoes uniform translational motion, the above definitions apply to each point of the body. A body may also undergo uniform rotation about a fixed axis; in this case, the body’s angular speed ω is constant, and the angular displacement of the body is ϕ = ωt.

In uniform motion ([f.sub.x] = [f.sub.y] [approximately equal to] 0), according to the accelerometer error parameters and (12), we can conclude that aM A * g [approximately equal to] 194 [micro]g < aB = 500 [micro]g.
The preceding results with uniform motion apply to collision avoidance with two vehicles, as stated in the theorem on uniform motion: two vehicles with given distinct initial positions ([mathematical expression not reproducible]) and constant velocities ([mathematical expression not reproducible]) collide (35a) only if the initial relative position (9a) and the constant relative velocity (9b) are antiparallel (35b)=(35c):
Each blurred region and its PSF are then entered as inputs to a uniform motion blur image deconvolution algorithm.
( a) state of rest or uniform motion till acted upon by an external ' farce' ( b) state of bliss until hit by higher taxes ( c) state of unrest when one can't sleep ( d) a Bimaru state ( e) don't know/ won't say.
In physics, what I describes the tendency of an object to remain in a state of rest or uniform motion until external force is appled?
What name is given to the state of a body at rest or in uniform motion before a force is applied?
The First Law of Motion is the law of inertia: "A body remains at rest, or if in motion, it remains in uniform motion with constant speed in a straight line, unless it is acted on by an unbalanced external force."
The descending time of the bushed bearing, calculated through three different procedures (uniform motion, uniformly variable motion and harmonic motion) is situated between 5,16 x [10.sup.-3]s and 8,1 x [10.sup.-3]s:
Alexander Kashlinsky (NASA/Goddard Space Flight Center) and his colleagues say they have measured an unexpected, uniform motion across a gigantic bulk of the universe.
With respect to perseverance in uniform rectilinear motion or rest, the Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman writes, "[the] property of inertia: if a particle is moving it keeps on going in the same direction unless forces act upon it." (11) In their textbook, Elements of Newtonian Mechanics, physicists Knudsen and Hjorth say, "No external force is necessary to maintain uniform motion. The motion continues unchanged due to a property of matter we call inertia." (12) A baseball, after being thrown, continues moving not only because it is in a state of motion but also in some way because of its inertia.
Newton's first law of motion states, "Every object in a state of uniform motion tends to remain in that state of motion, unless an external force is applied to it." Folks, your car is not equipped with an ejection seat to get you out a nanosecond before a crash.
Examples of those 3D/VR learning objects or courseware that we have developed (Wang & Yeung, 2001) specifically for training science teachers include: A Problem on Uniform Motion and Acceleration, Basic Optics in 3D, Virtual Reality Crystal Lattices, The Earth and the Moon around the Sun, and Human Skull and interactive 3D molecules of some common chemical or biological substances.
