Rectilinear Motion

What is Rectilinear Motion? Rectilinear Motion is a type of motion that occurs only along one axis or direction. It is also referred to as linear motion. Let us now learn about the meaning, definition, types, some examples, and physical quantities or parameters of rectilinear motion. Introduction We already know about motion, the most common …

Vernier caliper


Vernier caliper is introduced in 1631 by Pierre Vernier of France.It is instrument for making very accurate linear measurements It utilizes two graduated scales: a main scale similar to that on a ruler and an especially graduated auxiliary scale, the vernier, that slides parallel to the main scale and enables readings to be made to a fraction of a division on the main scale.

What is Equilibrium

A rigid body is supposed to be in equilibrium if there is no change in translational motion and no change in rotational motion
The general conditions for equilibrium are as follows
(i) The total force must be zero
(ii) The total torque about any axis must be zero.
In many cases it is convenient to consider torques about axes through the centre of gravity.

Types of equilibrium
We can divide the equilibrium into two categories With respect to the state of a body
1. Static equilibrium.
2. Dynamic equilibrium.
