An object's motion is affected by the initial speed and acceleration and the forces that interact with it, the most important being:
Gravity - that is affected by the gravitational constant g - which is affected by altitude;
Air friction - that depends on the speed of the object and it's volume and air density;
Surface friction - depends on the size of the surface of contact, the force that the object exerts on the surface, the surface and the object's coefficient of friction;
All the above forces are proportional to the mass of the object.

Any type of force can start or increase or decrease the motion of an object. (Force in the same direction increases and opposite direction decreases the motion of a moving object). wind, gravity, friction, mechanical etc. are forces affecting motion.
