An object can be at rest relative to a second object whilst in motion relative to a third object.

For example, if you sit still then relative to the Earth you are at rest. However the Earth is both spinning on its axis and travelling around the Sun, so relative to an observer in space you are in motion. Einstein showed us that all such concepts are relative.

### How can a moving object have a motion diagram that is the same as that of an object at rest?

They could be the same if the frames of both onjects were taken at different time intervals

### If an object is at rest how do you graph it?

It depends on what type of graph you use. If it is a line graph, and time is on the bottom and distance is on the left, it will result in a flat line from where ever it stopped.

### Can a body be said to be in rest or in uniform motion in same time?

Yes, it all depends on the point of view. An object can be at rest for one observer, and in uniform motion for a different observer.

### Can an object be at rest as well as in motion at same time?

### What can you say about the motion of an object whose distance time graph is a straight parallel to the time axis?

object is at rest

### What is motion and no motion?

When an object changes its position with respect to time, then the body is said ti be in 'motion'. When the body is at rest, it is state of 'no motion'.

### How does an object and motion change in time?

An object's motion can change in time due to various factors such as forces acting on it, acceleration, and the presence of external influences like friction or air resistance. These changes can result in the object accelerating, decelerating, changing direction, or coming to a complete stop. The specific changes in object and motion depend on the particular circumstances and forces involved.

### What would happen if an object at rest or in motion was acted upon by an inside force?

the time will collapse in the time tunnel

### When do we say an object is in motion?

That is equivalent to saying that: * The object is moving, or * The object doesn't stay all the time in the same place.

### What is multiple motion and give their example?

the object that can perform two or more types of motion at the same time is called multiple motion.

### How does motion in a vertical circle differ from that in a horizontal circle?

During motion in a vertical circle, the force of gravity (weight of the object) is in the same direction as the motion for half the time and in the opposite direction for the rest.For a body moving in a horizontal circle, gravity is acting orthogonally to the motion at all times.During motion in a vertical circle, the force of gravity (weight of the object) is in the same direction as the motion for half the time and in the opposite direction for the rest.For a body moving in a horizontal circle, gravity is acting orthogonally to the motion at all times.During motion in a vertical circle, the force of gravity (weight of the object) is in the same direction as the motion for half the time and in the opposite direction for the rest.For a body moving in a horizontal circle, gravity is acting orthogonally to the motion at all times.During motion in a vertical circle, the force of gravity (weight of the object) is in the same direction as the motion for half the time and in the opposite direction for the rest.For a body moving in a horizontal circle, gravity is acting orthogonally to the motion at all times.
