Difference b/w uniform motion and velocity

  1. Jan 20, 2013 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Is there any real difference between uniform motion and uniform velocity? Am asking this question because the defination of the two concept are complicating.

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Uniform motion can be defined as a motion which covers equal distance in equal interval of time.http://physics.tutorvista.com/motion/uniform-motion.html while uniform velocity is defined as the velocity of a moving body where equal distances are covered in equal time interval, however small the time interval may be. So is there any real difference or are the two concept the same?

    The phrase 'uniform motion' is a bit loose. Better to think of constant velocity. (In practice, they are the same.) And think in terms of equal displacement per unit time, not just distance.
