What is Motion?

Motion refers to the movement or change in position of an object over time. It can be described in terms of distance, velocity, and acceleration. The study of motion is known as mechanics. There are different types of motion, including linear motion (motion in a straight line) and rotational motion (motion around an axis). The laws of motion, first described by Sir Isaac Newton, form the basis of classical mechanics and explain the behavior of objects in motion.
