EQUATIONS OF MOTION

When an object moves along a straight line with uniform acceleration, it is possible to relate its velocity, acceleration during motion and the distance covered by it in a certain time interval by a set of equations known as the equations of motion. There are three such equations. These are:

where u is the initial velocity of the object which moves with uniform acceleration a for time t, v is the final velocity, and s is the distance travelled by the object in time t.

Eq. (1) describes the velocity-time relation and Eq. (2) represents the position-time relation. Eq. (3), which represents the relation between the position and the velocity, can be obtained from Eqs. (1) and (2) by eliminating t. These three equations can be derived by graphical method.

## Importance of Solving Numericals for Motion Class 9

Solving numerical problems in Class 9 plays a crucial role in the learning process and is essential for several reasons:

1. Understanding concepts: Numerical problems require students to apply the theoretical concepts they have learned in practical situations. By solving numericals, students gain a deeper understanding of the subject matter and its real-world applications.
2. Problem-solving skills: Numerical problems often involve critical thinking and analytical skills. When students tackle these problems, they develop their problem-solving abilities, which are valuable not only in academics but also in various aspects of life.
3. Application of formulas: Numericals help students apply mathematical formulas and equations to real-life scenarios. This strengthens their mathematical foundation and improves their ability to use formulas effectively.
4. Confidence boost: Successfully solving numerical problems can boost a student’s confidence in their academic abilities. It provides a sense of accomplishment and motivates them to take on more challenging tasks.
5. Exam preparation: Many examinations, including Class 9 assessments, include numerical questions. Practicing numerical problems prepares students for these exams and helps them perform well.
6. Building logical thinking: Numerical problems often require a logical approach to arrive at the correct solution. By practicing such problems, students enhance their logical reasoning skills.
7. Retention of concepts: Actively engaging with numerical problems reinforces the concepts learned in class, improving retention and recall during exams and beyond.
8. Connecting theory with practice: Numerical problem-solving bridges the gap between theoretical knowledge and its practical applications. This connection helps students grasp the real significance of the concepts they are studying.
9. Facilitating higher-level learning: As students progress to higher classes, numerical problem-solving becomes more complex and advanced. Building a strong foundation in Class 9 prepares them for the challenges ahead.
10. Career and academic success: In many fields, such as science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), problem-solving skills are highly valued. Excelling in numerical problem-solving in Class 9 can pave the way for future success in these fields.
