Motion is change of location or position of an object with respect to time. Change in motion is the result of an applied force. Motion is typically described in terms of velocity also seen as speed, acceleration, displacement, and time. However, the motion of an object is only relative to the position of another object. Motion is a change in position of an object with respect to another object.

Motion is a body's change of position in space with regard to time caused by a force or a transfer of energy. When a body is in motion it is performing work since there is a transfer of energy or the exertion of force. Space provides the arena for the motion and time measures the motion itself. No motion can happen unless a force acts upon the body. Otherwise the body will remain at rest or if it is in motion continue moving with uniform velocity.

In short, if a body is relatively displaced to an observer, then it is said to be in motion.
