# can a body be at rest and motion at a same time ? explain

It is possible for the body to be at rest as well as be in motion at the same time. This can happen in the case of a person being in a car at rest and the car is in motion. In such a case, the person would be at rest relative to the car and be in motion which is relative.

Rest and Motion are Relative Terms.

An object which is at rest can also be in motion with respect to different refernce points.

eg.)  A passenger travelling in a bus; the passenger is at rest with respect to the fellow passengers but it is in motion with respect to the bus.

Yes, a body can be at rest and at motion at the same time. Consider yourself sitting on a moving bus. With respect to a passenger sitting next to you, you are at rest. While with respect to a person waiting at the bus stop you are moving with some speed.

An object may seem to be at rest bur its not necessary that its actually at rest. For example:
A wall seems 2 b at rest bt the electrons of the atomspresent in the wall are continuously at motion.

no

yes it may be when the person is travelling in train. train is in  motion while person is in rest

A rock sitting on the ground is at rest with respect to the earth, but the earth is turning and moving around the sun and the sun is moving through space, etc, so we have to state the framework. So yes, in that sense a body can be at rest and inmotion at the same time. But not both in the same framework.

the answer is .... a ball is thrown upwards when it reaches the highest point its velocity becomes zero { when a body is at rest the velocity is zero}  and then the body will fall from that position.  when it goes up and comes down the force of gravity  will be acting on it .{that force of gravity ultimately is the acceleration due to gravity}
therefore a body can accelerate even when it is at rest.

in those examples like travelling in bus train etc the person is at rest with respect to the train not with the surroundings ... so those examples are not that apt for the question .....

hope the helps ;)

i dont know because i want to ask question when a body is at rest and motion please reply for this question immediate please

See, Assume that you are sitting in a airplane ok? So you are at rest but the plane is moving so your position is changing but you are not moving makes sense right ? Good Luck 👍🏻

Yes,rest and motion are relative. It means an object in one situation can be at rest but in another situation, the same object can be in motion. For example:- A person sitting in a moving train is at rest with respect to his fellow passengers but is in motion with respect to the objects outside the train. Similarly a person sitting in his house is at rest with respect to earth but is in motion with respect to other planets.
