Moving air is called Wind
A gentle wind is called Breeze

A very strong wind is called Gale
Uses of moving air
A weather cock or wind vane is used to know the direction of the wind. At airports we use wind sock to know the direction of the wind. When aeroplanes fly in the direction of the wind , it saves fuel.
Wind makes windmill work. They are used to generate wind energy which is used to grind grains, pump water and make electricity.
