Mass can only be changed if a something loses or gains a bit more stuff, the object has to get bigger or smaller.

That is "force".

### If an object's mass stays constant a net force on the object will cause a change in what?

the acceleration of the object.

Velocity

### When does mass cause an object to fall faster?

Mass does not cause an object to fall faster.

### Does the mass of an object change as the distance of gravity changes?

No, the measured weight of an object WILL change but the mass of an object will never change regardless of the gravitational force on object.

### What will cause the mass of an object change?

A mass of an object will usually only change if you add something to it, or take something away. According to the Special Theory of Relativity, the mass can also increase if the object moves very fast - at speeds comparable to the speed of light.

### What is a force that can cause an object to change its speed and direction?

A basic physics answer for this is that a net force (or unbalanced force) will cause an object to accelerate, that is, cause the object to change its speed and/or direction.

### How does the mass of an object on earth compare with the mass of the same object on the moon?

there is no change in the mass of body

### How does the mass and the object on the earth compare with the mass of the same object on the moon?

The object's mass doesn't change, no matter where it is or where it goes.

### How do forces cause a change in an object's momentum?

A force acting on a body causes acceleration. Acceleration is measure of the rate of change in the object's velocity. As its velocity changes, its momentum, which is the product of its mass and velocity, will change.

### What changes when you change the mass of a moving object?

Quantities which depend on the mass of an object are its momentum, and kinetic energy.Both change if the mass changes. In addition, if the object's volume doesn't change,then its density also changes.

### When the mass of an object increases how does the object's acceleration change?

As mass increases acceleration decreases.
