  1. motions

    In physics, motion is the phenomenon in which an object changes its position with respect to time. Motion is mathematically described in terms of displacement, distance, velocity, acceleration, speed and frame of reference to an observer and measuring the change in position of the body relative to that frame with change in time. The branch of physics describing the motion of objects without reference to its cause is called kinematics, while the branch studying forces and their effect on motion is called dynamics. If an object is not changing relative to a given frame of reference, the object is said to be at rest, motionless, immobile, stationary, or to have a constant or time-invariant position with reference to its surroundings. Modern physics holds that, as there is no absolute frame of reference, Newton's concept of absolute motion cannot be determined. As such, everything in the universe can be considered to be in motion.: 20–21 Motion applies to various physical systems: objects, bodies, matter particles, matter fields, radiation, radiation fields, radiation particles, curvature, and space-time. One can also speak on the motion of images, shapes, and boundaries. In general, the term motion signifies a continuous change in the positions or configuration of a physical system in space. For example, one can talk about the motion of a wave or the motion of a quantum particle, where the configuration consists of probabilities of the wave or particle occupying specific positions.

Examples of motions in a Sentence

  1. Nicole Xu:

    Jellyfish have existed for over 500 million years, and over that time, their body structure has remained largely unchanged, so it's interesting to figure out what makes them so special and how we can learn from them, because we use animals with natural swimming motions, the hope is that they won't disturb the environment in the same way that a submarine might, so we can expand the types of environments we can monitor.

  2. Sonny Cumbie:

    Their defensive front is very good, we felt with some of our run schemes and some of our motions, we would be able to hit some creases. And our running backs broke some tackles. They were a good opponent, but I did feel we’d have the ability to run the football.

  3. Jonathan Kuntz:

    There was a time in the'80s where it seemed like the James Bond films were going through the motions. But I think since 2006, each James Bond film has been carefully crafted, it doesn't mean they've all been masterpieces, but they've given us something really new and visually stunning in the Bond films.

  4. Dave Levine:

    This was our first opportunity to watch the arm and turret move in concert with each other, making sure that everything worked as advertised - nothing blocking or otherwise hindering smooth operation of the system, standing there, watching the arm and turret go through their motions, you cant help but marvel that the rover will be in space in less than a year from now and performing these exact movements on Mars in less than two.

  5. Dr Wolf:

    These large and rapidly-growing black holes are exceedingly rare, and we have been searching for them with SkyMapper for several months now. The European Space Agency’s Gaia satellite, which measures tiny motions of celestial objects, helped us find this supermassive black hole, as supermassive black holes shine, they can be used as beacons to see and study the formation of elements in the early galaxies of the universe.
