How do you find the smallest force required to move an object in a perfect vacuum not near any other objects?
I guess what I’m looking for is the smallest force that can be applied in which the next instant after the force is initiated, the object is at a different location. How do you find this force applied at initiation? If this is not what I’m looking for but someone guesses that I may Be looking for something else, please inform me on what this may be. I think this cannot be solved since there seems to not be such thing as “next instants’” since there are infinite numbers in between any two numbers.

There is no “smallest force”. No matter how small a force you consider, there is always a smaller force. And a force, no matter how small, will move an object.
