Motion The state in which one object's distance from another is changing
Speed A measurement that describes any object in motion
Average speed The overall rate of speed at which an object moves
Instantaneous Speed The speed of an object at one instant of time
Velocity Speed in a given direction. Velocity describes both an object's speed and the direction of its motion.

Mass A measure of the amount of matter in an object. The SI unit of mass in the kilogram.
Inertia (Energy of change) All Objects, moving or not, resist changes in motion. Resistance to change in motion is called Interia. Interia explains many common events, including why you move forward in your seat.
