We can find objects in motion all around us. Even when the person is resting, the heart pumps blood through the veins. There is the motion of atoms and molecules in all the objects. There is motion when the ball is hit by a player with his bat. The branch of classical mechanics that deals with the study of the motion of the points, objects and a group of objects without considering the causes of motion are called Kinematics. The word kinematics came from the Greek word “kinesis”, meaning motion. Kinematics has its application in astrophysics to study the motion of celestial objects. It is also used in robotics, biomechanics to explain the motion of objects with joint parts such as engines, human skeletons, robotic arms and much more.
