To do:

To write the similarities and differences between the motion of a bicycle and a ceiling fan that has been switched on.

Solution:

Before writing thing the similarities and differences between the motion of a bicycle and a ceiling fan that has been switched on, let us discuss the motion of a bicycle and a ceiling fan.

The motion of a bicycle:

When a bicycle starts to move, its wheels rotate along with their axis as well as show rectilinear motion by moving forward direction.

Thus, the motion of the bicycle is rectilinear as well as periodic motion.

The motion of a ceiling fan:

The motion of a ceiling fan is a circular motion as it is rotating along with the fixed axis.

Similarities between the motion of a bicycle and a ceiling fan that has been switched on:

1. Both the bicycle and ceiling fan's wheel execute rotational motion along with their axis.

2. Particles of both exhibit circular motion except.

Difference between the motion of a bicycle and a ceiling fan that has been switched on:

1. A bicycle can change its position while a ceiling fan can't.

2. A bicycle performs a rectilinear motion while a ceiling fan does not.
