Solution

When some force is applied on a rigid body free to move and the body starts moving along a straight path in the direction of force. This is known as linear or translational motion. Points on the rigid body, undergo displacements forming parallel lines and magnitude of displacement is the same for individual point.
e.g. the motion of a bullet fired from a gun, a ball thrown straight up and falling back straight down.
