A reference point shows the relation of an object and a moving/non-moving object. If you were in a hot-air balloon you would use a bird flying in relation to your hot-air balloon. To see if the bird changed position in relation to you.

Any moving object can be redefined as a frame of reference at rest, from which all other moving frames can be measured. That's a fundamental precept of Relativity. It's motion is defined only in relation to some other object from which the motion is measured, so reselection as the rest frame is necessary, but once established as a rest frame, it is (for the purpose of measurement) no longer considered to be in motion. Since everything is moving in relation to everything else, any frame can be selected as the frame of reference at rest, with all other motion measured relative to it.

There's no such thing as "motion through space". Motion must be measured relative to another object. So we just measure how fast the other object appears to be moving, and there we go.

Motion has occured if the distance between a moving object and a non-moving object changes

When a moving object is pushed in the direction of its motion the speed of the object increases

When an object is seen moving in relation to a stationary object is called the frame of reference

An object is deemed to be moving, or in motion, when there is a change in position of an object compared to a stationary object.

you now this because speed is how fast an object is ''moving'' and motion is when an object is ''moving''

It means that the object is moving.

The movement in relation to a frame of reference is called relative motion. A frame of reference is a system of object that are not moving with respect to one another.

mass affects the object that is in motion because it is moving so there for it is moving the same speed

An object which is moving doesn't need a force to keep it moving.

Newton's First Law of Motion states that an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. The term inertia is also used to describe the resistance of an object to any change in its motion. If an object is not moving, it doesn't want to move. If it is moving, it doesn't want to change is speed or the direction it is moving. This is covered by Newton in his laws of motion.

An object in motion will remain in motion until forces act upon it.

. . .point of reference. For example, one can tell whether a planet is moving according to its position in relation to a star.

The object will remain at rest if it was at rest or will maintain its motion with uniform velocity if it was moving.

An object moving in relation to another object. It can be either positive or negative.

If it's moving in relation to you, then yes.

Bulk motion is a type of motion that an object does. The object moves in a wave-like formation instead of just the waves moving.

If you are standing still and a car passes you at 60 mph it appears to be moving at 60 mph If you are traveling in a car at 60 mph and a car alongside you traveling in the same direction at 60 mph it appears to be not moving, since the relative velocity is 0

The fact is that it always is ... in relation to something. For an object to be at "rest" there must be a second object to compare it with.

Gravity is a force and has the effect of changing the velocity or direction of motion of a moving object.

An object that is projectile is an object that is moving through the air. When you throw an object it is projectile.
