Lift vs. Raise vs. Rise

Lift is physical force while is upward motion.incline

Lift an object from the ground.  You will raise the object but with physical force that resists gravity.

You can raise your hand or a glass of wine for a toast, but it is only a change of location.

If your boss decides to pay you more, it is a raise.rise-and-go

Rise is also used with elevation.  The mountains rise out of the sea.  The rise of steps or the angle of a rise.


If you had a 12 foot rise for every 12 feet, it  it would be a 45 degree angle.
