What is the difference between translation equilibrium and dynamic translational equilibrium ?

Also what is the difference between rotational and dynamic rotational equilibrium ?

definitions :

Translational equilibrium :

A body is said to be in translational equilibrium if it is at rest, or is moving at constant speed in a straight line.

Rotational equilibrium

A body is said to be in rotational equilibrium if it is rotating at constant angular speed about a fixed axis.

  • $\begingroup$ Well, the only place where I have heard the term Dynamic Equilibrium is while studying Chemical Equilibrium in chemistry. I don't think it's used in Physics. $\endgroup$ – harshit54 Dec 15 '18 at 8:56
  • $\begingroup$ However it might be used to differentiate between two types where A) The body is at rest, B) The body is moving/rotating with uniform speed/angular speed. $\endgroup$ – harshit54 Dec 15 '18 at 8:57
