What is difference between circular and rotatory motion?

Answer: A body moving along a circular path is said to be in circular motion while if a body spins around it's axis then it is said to be in rotatory motion. For example a stone attached to string is whirled in a circle is circular motion while rotation of stone around it's own axis is rotatory motion.
