A question concerning the physics of motion.

It is to my understanding that when it comes to the action of motion inside space you can change an object's direction of motion or you can change its rate of motion or you can change both at the exact same time. At the same time though it is also to my understanding that an object's motion is a component of its state of being. But because you can change an object's direction or rate of motion without having to change both should mean that an object not only has 2 different state wide variables, 1 for its direction & 1 for its rate but these 2 different state wide variables should work together to define its present state of motion. So under this context is it possible to use quantum physics/mechanics to artificially stimulate an object to change its present state of motion without having to use a force to do so?

It's not clear whether you're talking about two different things or not. You start by referring to "objects" then finish asking about "Quantum". By "objects" are you referring to such things like rocks ? If so general physics apply. Energy is conserved. In order to change anything that's a function of energy such as spin direction and velocity you must add or take away energy.

But in quantum mechanics there are exceptions to the rules that appear to defy the general rules, such as the study of entangled particles. But even with entangled particles you have to add or take away energy from 1 particle to change the state of it's entangled partner.
