Define inertia. On what factor does it depend? what are the different kinds of inertia? give one example of each.

Inertia:The tendancy of a body to remain at rest (stationary) or,if moving, to continue moving in a straight line,it is called inertia.Inertia is that property of a body due to which it resists a change in its state of rest or of uniform motion.

Inertia depends on the mass of the body.Mass is the measure of the inertia of a body.Heavy objects have more inertia than light objects.

Kinds of inertia:

1.Inertia of rest

2.Inertia of motion

3.Rotational inertia

4.Gyroscopic inertia.

actually inertia is our wish . it depends on the mass more the mass less the inertia and less the mass more is the inertia

• -6

Inertia is a natural tendancy of a body to remain in a state of rest or of  uniform motion along a straight line.

Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to a change in its state of motion or rest, or the tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion. It is proportional to an object's mass. The principle of inertia is one of the fundamental principles of classical physics which are used to describe the motion of matter and how it is affected by applied forces. Inertia comes from the Latin word, iners, meaning idle, or lazy. Isaac Newton defined inertia as his first law in his Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica, which states:[1]

(1) The general concept of inertia, according to newton's first laws, concerning objects' masses when it comes to resistance.

(2) Rotational inertia

(3) Gyroscopic inertia

Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to a change in its state of motion or rest, or the tendency of an object to resist any change in its motion. It is proportional to an object's mass.  there are three types of inertia
