Can a body exist in a state of absolute rest or of absolute motion?explain.

Rest and motion are always relative. A body cannot exist at a state of absolute rest or absolute motion. For example, two persons sitting in a moving bus are at rest w.r.t each other but are in motion w.r.t. a person standing on the roadside. Further, trees, buildings, etc on the surface of the Earth appear to be at rest but infact they are in motion as the Earth revolves around the Sun. Thus, there is no object which can be condisered to be at absolute rest. Hence, rest and motion are relative terms.

- A cyclist travels a distance of 4 km from P and Q and then moves a distance of 3 km at right angle to PQ. Find his resultant displacement graphically.
- What is scalar quantity
- A particle is moving in a circle of diameter 5m. Calculate the distance covered and the displacement when it competes 3 revolutions.
- What is rest in motion?
- Can the state of absolute rest or motion be defined for any object ?comment
- what is displacement
- what is relative terms?
- what is net displacement ?
- an athlete completes one round of a circular track of diameter 200m in 40 seconds .what will be the distance covered and the displacement at the end of 2 minutes distance covered and the displacement at the end of 2 minutes 20 seconds distance covered and the displacement at the end of 2 minutes 20 seconds
