Definition[edit source]

"Motion is caused by a force to make an object to move..." — I'm afraid, this is the ancient idea of Aristotle, see w:Newton's laws of motion#History. By Newton's first law, "an object ... continues to move at a constant velocity, unless acted upon by a force". This is the fundamental physics of 18th and 19th centuries.
