Problem 7RQ

What does it mean to say that a moving object has inertia? Give an example.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 7RQ Step 1 : Let us understand what is inertia. Inertia is condition to remain unchanged. It is the resistance offered by a physical object to remain in its currents state, that is, if a body is at rest it will continue to be a rest state and if it is moving it will continue to move with uniform velocity along a straight path Step 2 : In case of moving a body, inertia can be explained as the tendency of a moving body to move with uniform velocity with no change in speed and direction of a moving body
