Given below are x - t plots for linear motion of a particle.  Which of the plots represent periodic motion.  What is the period of motion (in case of periodic motion)?

Expert Answer:

(i)  It is not periodic as the motion is not repeated after a fixed point.

(ii)  It is periodic with time period of 2 seconds as x - t graph is repeated after 2 seconds.

(iii)  It is not periodic.

(iv)  It is periodic with a period of 2 seconds as the x - t graph is repeated after 2 seconds.
