Kinematics and Dynamics

In the field of physics, the study of the causes of motion and changes in motion is dynamics. In other words, the study of forces and why objects are in motion. Dynamics includes the study of the effect of torques on motion. These are in contrast to kinematics, the branch of classical mechanics that describes the motion of objects without consideration of the causes leading to the motion.
