# Your question: What kind of motion is that of the clocks second hand?

## What is the motion of hand of a clock?

Since the clock hands move in a circular direction, they are said to be in circular or rotational motion. Therefore, the clock hands are said to be in a periodic motion and circular or rotational motion. In pendulum clocks, the pendulum sways across from one end to another.

## Is clock a example of motion?

The motion of the hands of a clock is an example of circular motion.

## Is minute hand of clock in oscillatory motion?

Answer: They all are repetitive in nature, that is, they repeat their motion after equal intervals of time.

## Is the motion of the second hand of a clock a uniform circular motion?

It is uniform circular motion as well as periodic motion because speed of the second hand remains same and after particular time interval it repeats itself.

## What are the two types of motion?

Types Of Motion

• Linear Motion.
• Rotary Motion.
• Oscillatory Motion.

## Which type of motion is an apple falling from a tree?

Answer: An apple falling from a tree show rectilinear motion because it fall in a straight way by gravitational force.

## What is period motion?

By The Editors of Encyclopaedia Britannica | View Edit History. Periodic motion, in physics, motion repeated in equal intervals of time. Periodic motion is performed, for example, by a rocking chair, a bouncing ball, a vibrating tuning fork, a swing in motion, the Earth in its orbit around the Sun, and a water wave.

## What is oscillatory motion in simple words?

Oscillatory motion is defined as the to and fro motion of the body about its fixed position. Oscillatory motion is a type of periodic motion. Examples of oscillatory motion are vibrating strings, swinging of the swing etc.
