Q: motion と movement はどう違いますか?
A: "Motion" and "Movement" are two very similar words that both have something to do with “changing position or going from one place to another.” (Collins English Dictionary) But here are a few differences between the two words:

First of all, based on an article from a Website named iSoul, "motion is used to describe physical properties, while movement is used to describe the qualities of motion."

Also, based on the same article, "motion doesn’t always imply a purpose, and movement usually does." Plus, it was stated in the article that movement is more of the displacement from one place to another while motion is more of not standing still.
