I always get confused In Oscillating, Reciprocating and Rotating motions. Can someone please explain to me what they are.
Rotating- planets orbiting each other. Easy to remember
Oscillating- thing of the pendulum on an old grandfather clock.
Reciprocating- thing of someone sawing a piece of wood. The saw goes foward, then back, then foward.
I know it isn't great but i hope it helps.
