A pull is a force applied along a given axis direction, such as the x axis. A push is a force applied along a given axis direction, such as the x axis, but in the opposite direction., that is, the negative x axis. For a circular rod, for example, a pull will stretch it if applied along its axis, and a push will compress it

In Physics: Push is compressive, pull is tensional.

Push: to apply a compressive force to an object, commonly to the point most remote from the direction of the potential motion of the object.

Pull: to apply a tensional force to an object, commonly to the point most proximal to the direction of the potential motion of the object.

Push and pull are both forces acting on a body.
But push moves the object away from the source of the force while pull moves the object towards the source of the force.
