A study is made of the motion of an extended body in arbitrary gravitational and electromagnetic fields. In a previous paper it was shown how to construct a set of reduced multipole moments of the charge-current vector for such a body. This is now extended to a corresponding treatment of the energy-momentum tensor. It is shown that, taken together, these two sets of moments have the following three properties. First, they provide a full description of the body, in that they determine completely the energy-momentum tensor and charge-current vector from which they are constructed. Secondly, they include the total charge, total momentum vector and total angular momentum (spin) tensor of the body. Thirdly, the only restrictions on the moments, apart from certain symmetry and orthogonality conditions, are the equations of motion for the total momentum and spin, and the conservation of total charge. The time dependence of the higher moments is arbitrary, since the process of reduction used to construct the moments has eliminated those contributions to these moments whose behaviour is determinate. The uniqueness of the chosen set of moments is investigated, leading to the discovery of a set of properties which is sufficient to characterize them uniquely. The equations of motion are first obtained in an exact form. Under certain conditions, the contributions from the moments of sufficiently high order are seen to be negligible. It is then convenient to make the multipole approximation, in which these high order terms are omitted. When this is done, further simplifications can be made to the equations of motion. It is shown that they take an especially simple form if use is made of the extension operator of Veblen & Thomas. This is closely related to repeated covariant differentiation, but is more useful than that for present purposes. By its use, an explicit form is given for the equations of motion to any desired multipole order. It is shown that they agree with the corresponding Newtonian equations in the appropriate limit.
