Read the following sentences carefully, and choose the incorrect one:

[A]. Transport means to carry people and goods from one place to another.
[B]. People learnt to join together plank on wood to make boats having a streamlined shape.
[C]. The invention of wheel made a great change in the modes of transport.
[D]. In the beginning of 18th century, the invention of steam engine introduced a new source of power to run transport vehicles.

What do you mean by “one oscillation”, “vibratory motion” and “random motion”?

One complete cycle from the point of release to the other extreme and back to the initial point is called one oscillation. A very fast back and forth motion is called vibratory motion. When a body moves in different direction and does not have a fixed path, it is called random motion.

How many types of motion is exhibited by the earth moving around the sun?

The earth moves around the sun, so it has circular motion. The earth repeats its motion around the sun after regular intervals of time after one year. So, it has periodic motion and the earth rotates on its axis, so it has also rotational motion. Thus, the earth has three types of motion at the same time, circular motion, periodic motion and rotational motion.

Can you write, one differences between “circular motion” and “rotational motion”.

The difference between circular motion and rotational motion is that in circular motion an object as a whole travel along a circular path but in rotational motion, the object spins on its axis.

How many types of motion exhibited by the sewing machine?

The sewing machine has a wheel which rotates on its axle. So, the wheel of a sewing machine shows rotational motion. The sewing machine has also a needle which moves up and down continuously. The needle of sewing machine undergoes a periodic motion. Thus, a sewing machine exhibits two types of motion at the same time, rotational motion as well as periodic motion.
