Solution

## Difference between the motion of cycle and ceiling fan.Motion of cycleMotion of Ceiling fan1. Bicycle moves in linear motion.The ceiling fan moves in a circular motion.2. Cycle moves in a rectilinear pattern.Fan blades move in a periodic pattern.3. When a bicycle rotates, there is rolling friction between the Tyre and the road, which causes rotation.The rotational motion of a ceiling fan is caused by a magnetic field associated with current travelling through its coils. Similarities between the motion of the cycle and the ceiling fan.Motion of cycleMotion of Ceiling fan1. The wheels of the cycle spin in a circular motion.The blades of the ceiling fan also move in circular motion.2. The spokes in the wheels of the cycle is fixed between the cycle hub and the rim.The fan blades are also fixed with the motors at the center.3. Cycle motion is rotational around an axis that passes through their center of mass.Ceiling fan motion is also rotational motion around an axis that passes through their center of mass.
