Definition of Uniform Motion
A body is said to be in Uniform Motion if it moves in a straight line at constant speed.
More About Uniform Motion
- A body in uniform motion covers equal distance in equal intervals of time
- If a body moves in uniform motion with a constant speed v for time t, then the distance traveled s is given as s = v/t
Examples of Uniform Motion
- Planets move around the sun in uniform motion
- Suppose a bus travels at a constant speed of 73 miles per hour. Then this constant speed can be called as uniform motion

Solved Example on Uniform Motion
Ques: Which of the graphs shows uniform motion?
Choices:A. both the Graphs
B. Graph 1
C. Graph 2
Correct Answer: C
Step 1: Graph 2 shows that the velocity is constant as the time passes on and hence, Graph 2 represents uniform motion.
