1 Answer | add yours
Motion and rest are relative term you can understand from following example.
You are sitting in bus and bus is moving from one place to another place. Now look your position with reference to bus is same . That mean to say at place A you was on seat no. say 1 and when bus arrived at place B ,you are still at seat no.1 . Your position not changed but your position with reference to place A and B changed.
Though you was never in motion , in motion was bus. Thus with reference to bus you was on rest but wth refernce to road you was moving.
Finally you can conclude motion and rest are relative terms.
