## Relative Nature of Motion

Now we know that motion is a relative term.So absolute motion has no meaning, right? So aren’t Galileo’s view that earth moves around sun and the church’s old belief that sun moves around

## A simple numerical on momentum

Car mass is 1200 kg moving velocity is 108 km/hr. On applying brakes velocity reduced to 36 km/hr. Find change in momentum? (posted by Aditi) Answer: m=1200 kg u=108 x 5/18=30m/s v=36×5/18=10m/s Change in momentum = m(v-u) = 1200 x (30-10)=1200 ...
