The speed can be constant but the velocity can't, because the direction

of motion ... which is a component of velocity ... is changing. Also the velocity of a moving body changes when its speed changes but remains moving towards the same direction ... :) :]

Name the quantity that essentially changes when a body moves?

A moving body can be broken into the factors of mass and velocity. Momentum is the quantity that changes as velocity increases or decreases, assuming mass is held constant.

How does increasing mass effect kinetic energy?

Kinetic energy equals .5(mass)(velocity)^2. This means that as mass increases, kinetic energy increases proportionately as long as velocity is held constant.

What are three ways the velocity of a car can change?

The variably of velocity can be increased or decreased by altering other factors. The removal or reduction of air resistance can result in higher velocity (if force is held constant). If force is increased velocity can also become higher. Reduction of mass and varying gear ratios can also correspond to higher velocity.
