a objects that can not move with out a type of force

The definition above "objects that can not move without a type of force" is incorrect.

Macquarie Dictionary states: 1. to give life to; make alive 2. to make lively, 3. to encourage 4. to move to action (ie He was animated by religious faith.) 5. Alive or possessing life. Even the definition 'to move to action' does not really cover an object being, or not being able to move with out having force applied to it. Motivate would be a good synonym to the 'move to action' defination. The Latin root of animate is 'animus' which means alive or spirit. If a single sentence definition is required it would be more accurate to define animate as: "an object that is alive"
