# Uniform Motion Problems

On this page I put together a collection of uniform motion problems to help you understand uniform motion better. Uniform motion is motion in a straight line at constant velocity.

Problem # 1

A train is traveling on a straight section of track at constant speed. In 60 seconds it covers a distance of 1800 meters. What is the speed of the train? Answer: 30 m/s

Problem # 2

A car is traveling down a highway at a speed of 100 km/h. How far does the car travel in 24 minutes? Answer: 40 km

Problem # 3

A car accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in 10 seconds, and then travels at constant speed. What is the speed of the car after 1 minute? Answer: 100 km/h

Problem # 4

A car travels a distance of d in 60 seconds and a distance of 2d in 120 seconds. At 30 seconds the car has traveled a distance of 650 meters. What is the value of d ? Answer: 1300 meters

Problem # 5

The figure below shows the road that a car travels and the corresponding speed versus time graph for the car. Between which two points is the car experiencing uniform motion? Problem # 6

The figure below shows the position versus time graph for a car traveling on a straight road. Between which two points is the car experiencing uniform motion? Problem # 7

In the previous problem, at which point does the car change its direction of motion?

For the car to experience uniform motion, it has to move in a straight line AND travel at constant speed. This is only true between the points A and B.

The car experiences uniform motion in locations where the slope of the line is constant, which is between points B and C, and between points C and D.
