Place a book on top of a table. is the book at rest or in motion?


The book is at rest because the object is not moving


The Book Is At Rest


The book is at motion if a person move the book



Rest is a state in physics that refers to an object being stationary relative to a particular frame of reference or another object; when the position of a body with respect to its surroundings does not change with time it is said to be "at rest".

at rest..


Because the book that you've placed in the table is not moving

→ the book is at rest

→ yes.the forces acting on the book are the force exerted by the table on the book (normal force)and the force of gravity

normal foce


force of gravity

At rest because there's no movement happened and the book on the top on the table is not change in positon
