Straight-line motion in which
equal displacements occur
during any successive equaltime intervals is called uniform
motion or constant

Example of Free Fall: Catch it, keep it!
Free Fall
If an object moves under the
influence of gravity only, and
no other forces, we call the
resulting motion free fall.
