Abstract : Conclusions: Motion of matter is absolute, since it exists independently of the system with respect to which it is considered, and, at the same time, it is relative, since physical systems move with respect to other physical systems; Matter moves in space and time, and the properties of the measure of motion must not contradict the properties of space and time; The scalar and vector measures of motions must be considered components of one complex measure, which has an absolute nature but is differently decomposed into components in different reference systems; The principle of relativity enables one to determine the nature of the connection between the components of the measure of motion of any physical system and its velocity in an arbitrary inertial reference system. It also permits one to introduce the concept of inert mass for any physical system, as a value connecting the velocity and the measure of motion.
