Question

A moving body is said to be positively accelerating if it is ____.

  1. Moving at a constant speed
  2. Slowing down
  3. Speeding up
  4. Not moving at all

hintHint:

Acceleration is positive when the rate of change is positive.

The correct answer is: Speeding up


    A moving body is said to be in positive acceleration when the body is moving with increasing velocity also acceleration of an object is said to be positive if the direction of object is same as that of the direction of the motion of the object.

    Example : when person jumps off the height.

    Selena is classifying different moving objects into two categories, i.e., rotational motion and periodic motion. She has the following motions to classify:
    a. The motion of a swing
    b. The motion of the Earth around the Sun
    c. The motion of a giant wheel
    d. The motion of the blades of a fan at a particular speed
    e. The motion of the hands of a clock
    f. The motion of a roller coaster
    g. The motion of a merry-go-round
    h. The motion of a pendulum
    She could identify some of the above objects, which can be put in both categories. What are those?

    Which of the following motions repeat themselves after equal intervals of time?
    1. The motion of the Moon around the Earth
    2. The motion of the hour hand of a clock
    3. The motion of a tennis ball during a match
    4. The motion of a seesaw when children are playing

    the motion of the moon around the earth and the motion of the hour hand of the clock is a periodic motion hence, they repeat themselves after equal intervals of time.
