    rate
  2. Regarded in relation to something else. Depends on point of view, or frame of reference. Sometimes referred to as "with respect to."
    relative
  3. How fast something is moving; the path distance moved per time. The magnitude of the velocity vector.
    speed
  4. Speed at any instant of time.
    instantaneous speed
  5. Path distance divided by time interval
    average speed
  6. Speed together with the direction of motion.
    velocity
  7. The rate at which velocity is changing. The change may be in magnitude, direction, or both.
