# Differentiate between the following.Rectilinear motion and curvilinear motionRotational motion and circular motionPeriodic motion and random motion

The difference between Rectilinear Motion and Curvilinear Motion is given below:

 Rectilinear Motion Curvilinear Motion 1. When an object moves in a straight line, then it is said to be in a rectilinear motion. 1. When an object moves along a curved path, then it is said to be in a curvilinear motion. 2. Example: A bus moving on a straight road. 2. Example: A bus taking a turn.

The difference between Rotational Motion and Circular Motion is given below:

 Rotational Motion Circular Motion 1. It is the motion in which a body rotates on its own axis. 1. It is the motion in which a body just moves in a circle and always has a starting point to which it will eventually return. 2. Example- Moving of earth on its own axis, Spinning top. 2. Example: Motion of the earth around the sun in a circular orbit, the motion of a bike along a curved path.

The difference between Periodic Motion and Random Motion is given below:

 Periodic Motion Random Motion 1. It is a motion that repeats itself at regular periods of time. 1. It is a motion that does not repeat itself at regular periods of time. 2. Example- Movement of earth, A pendulum clock. 2. Example: The motion of insects and birds.
