Two basic features of instantaneous conjugate motion, which distinguishes it from instantaneous free body motion, are pointed out. Their influences on the geometrical constraints requisite for surface/line conjugation are discussed. Their importance in facilitating motion analysis of mechanical systems through linearization of relevant equations is clarified. Two illustrative examples are cited.
