  7. A simple pendulum is a small mass hung from a fixed point such that it can swing freely under the influence of gravity.Most simple pendulums consist of a small metallic ball called a bob hung on a string or wire.
  8. Odometer is a device that records total distance covered by the vehicle. It is used to calculate the distance travelled in a particular journey.
  9. The change in position of a body with time is called motion.When a body covers equal distance in equal interval of time the motion is called uniform motion. When a body covers unequal distance in equal interval of time, the speed is called non- uniform motion.
    1. Speedometer
    2. time-period
    3. second
    4. Huygens in 1656
    5. Stop watch.
