Ever since Greek Antiquity, it has been debated whether physical motion is relational or absolute. In the absence of any clear resolution, all discourses on the subject have been confined to qualitative philosophical arguments. This article demonstrates mathematically that the laws of dynamics imply that motion is absolute. In addition, this article elucidates Newton's bucket phenomenon.
