### Is the frame of reference needed to describe motion accurrately and completely?

That's right, motion cannot be measured unless you have some frame of reference within which to measure it.

### Object of point from which motion is determined?

Frame Of Reference. which means a framework that is used for the observation and mathematical description

### Is frame reference used to describe the motion of an object related to it?

It is called "reference frame"; and yes, that's the basic idea - related to what will you measure movement.

### What is an example of a frame of reference for the motion of a snowboarder?

A tree can be used for a frame of reference for the motion of a snowboarder.

A tree can be used for a frame of reference for the motion of a snowboarder.

### Is the inertial reference frame an absolute reference frame?

the inertial reference frame is not absolute. because motion is not absolute. motion is relative depends on who's looking/observing.

### Motion relative to observers frame of?

Motion is relative to an observer's frame of Reference.

### A movement in relation to a frame of reference is .?

Relative motion is movement in relation to a frame of reference.

### Is it true ir falst that motion is measure in relation to a frame of reference?

True. A frame of reference must be specified - or implied. (Movements are often assumed to be in relation to the ground, i.e., to our planet Earth.)

### How can you tell the motion of your frame of reference?

usually the motion of your frame of reference is 0. When you are in a train going 50 mph, your frame of reference would be you are going 0 mph and the tracks are traveling at -50 mph.

### How does motion depend on the frame of reference?

since by definition motion is 'The act, process, or state of changing place or position; movement; the passing of a body from one place or position to another, whether voluntary or involuntary; -- opposed to rest', then frame of reference (according to the physics def.) is the coordinates used to measure this motion. also, many people modify frame of reference by using sub categories, such as observational reference frame, which implies that we care about the state of motion more. macroscopic and microscopic frames of reference set themselves apart by focusing on the scale of observations.
