Types of Motion
While we could try to describe the motion of a complicated three dimensional situation, like the figure on this page (perhaps this is the path of a bee buzzing from flower to flower), but this is very complicated. Instead, we’ll start with something a little more tractable – 1 dimensional (straight line) motion. Later we will look at two (a particle moving in a plane) and three dimensional motion.
