Homework Help: Physics Homework

    I have a question here that I'am completely lost on.

    A mass was moving clockwise around a circular path when a multiflash photograph was taken of its movement. The camera had a flash frequency of 1Hz ( 1 flash photo per second), and a photo similar to the diagram below resulted.

    (a) was the motion of the mass uniform? WHY?

    (b) at position X on the diagram, the flash frequency instantly changed to 3Hz (3 flash photos per second). Show by crosses on the above diagram the next three positions of the mass.

    How do you understand "uniform motion"? What is its definition and what does it mean to you?
