The two different types of translatory motion are:
  1. Rectilinear/Linear motion: In this case, the object moves along a straight line path. For example, a car driving along a straight road is performing rectilinear motion.
  2. Curvilinear motion: When an object moves along a curved path, then the motion is said to be curvilinear motion. A car moving on a curved road is an example of curvilinear motion.
