When the position of an object changes over time, it is said to be in motion.
The position change of a moving object is always with respect to its surroundings.
Examples of motion in everyday life-
Riding a bicycle
A moving vehicle
Four types of motion-
Linear motion: The motion of an object on a straight line.
For example, a bike moving on a straight road.
Circular motion: The motion of an object on a circular path.
For example, the blades of a fan.
Rotational motion: In this type of motion, the object rotates around a fixed axis.
For example, the wheels of a moving vehicle.
Oscillatory motion: The back and forth motion of an object about a fixed position.
For example, the pendulum of a clock.
