# Differentiate Between Periodic and Non-periodic Motions by Giving an Example of Each. - ICSE Class 7 - Physics

ConceptTypes of Motion - Repetitive (Periodic and Non Periodic)

#### Question

Differentiate between periodic and non-periodic motions by giving an example of each.

#### Solution

Periodic motion : A motion which gets repeated after regular intervals of time is called a periodic motion.
Examples : The earth moving around the sun takes 365 days to complete one revolution and this motion gets repeated after every 365 days.
Non-periodic motion : The motion which does not repeat itself after regular interval of time is called non-periodic motion.
Examples : A footballer running on a field, application of brakes in a moving vehicle, a ball rolling down the ground gradually slows down and finally stops, motion of tides in the sea, etc.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
