Which one of the following situations is not one of the restrictions placed on the general properties of motion as described in the text? a) The motion may be in a straight line. b) A car that is traveling at 21 m/s due west is a good example of a particle that can be described by the equations given in Chapter 2 of the text. c) Forces may cause motion or change the motion. d) A tumbleweed is a good example of a particle that can be described by the equations given in Chapter 2 of the text. e) A moving object is either a particle or something that moves like a particle. 2.2.1.
