Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A friend of mine said it was B so I was wondering... Thanks for clearing it up :) I'll be asking a couple more multiple choice questions when I come across the one's I'm having trouble with :) thanks again

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2If it were oscillatory, it would be moving backwards and forwards, but let's assume the driver isn't going DriveReverseDriveReverseDriveReverse ...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2I think you also mean "Translational" not "Transitional"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well the options given says "transitional"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2that really doesn't make sense then. Translational motion however does make sense.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have no idea about what transitional (or translational) motion is but i knew it wasn't random or oscillatory cos oscillatory would be some weird movement for a car... I opted for C but I'm still not clear about what translational motion is.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2translation is the acting of moving from one place to another. So it what a normal person thinks of when you say something is moving.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Hence translational motion is moving in a given direction, which is what a wheel on a car does, unless it is just spinning in mud/snow/whatever.
