Matter can be defined as anything that occupies space, (i.e., has a volume), possesses mass, offers resistance and can be felt through one or more of our senses.

Kinematics deals with the study of motion without taking into account the cause of motion.Dynamics is concerned with the cause of motion, namely force.
