Rectilinear Motion of a Particle Suppose a particle of mass m is in motion along a straight line. 1), so also will the vector representing the force acting upon it. Let 0 be a fixed point on the line and let P be the position of the particle at time t (Fig. 4). Let 0 P = x, x being reckoned positive 0 m ------- (}' p F FIG. -Motion Along the x-Axis when P is on one side of 0 and negative when P lies on the other side . If v is the speed of P, v = dxjdt = i and v is positive if x is increasing. Let F be the magnitude of the force acting on P, F being given a positive sign if it acts in the direction in which x increases.
