Give Reasons for the Following:
In a long distance race, the athletes were expected to take four rounds of the track such that the line of finish was same as the line of start. The motion of the athlete is non-uniform. Why?
The athlete was expected to take four rounds such that: line of finish = line of start
This means, we are saying that athlete comes back to its initial position. This is only possible if there is change in direction.
Without the change in direction a person can never reach back the initial point.
Now, we know that change in direction means acceleration, hence motion is non uniform.
Rate this question :

There is an argument about uniform acceleration between Mr X and Mr Y. Mr X says “acceleration means that farther you go faster you go”. Mr Y says “acceleration means that longer you go the faster you go”. Whose statement is correct?Evergreen - Science

An object is dropped from rest at a height of 150 m and simultaneously another object is dropped from rest at a height 100 m. What is the difference in their heights after 2 s if both the objects drop with same accelerations? How does the difference in heights vary with time?NCERT Science - Exemplar
When you apply brakes to a car, in which direction is its acceleration?Evergreen - Science
You are sitting in a stationary car. There is a helium balloon tied to its floor. You accelerate and obviously feel like you are being pushed backwards (against the direction of your accelerations). The balloon.All In One - Science
