### CBSE Class 9 - Force and Laws of Motion - What is Inertia? (#cbseNotes)

What is Inertia?
CBSE Class 9 - Force and Laws of Motion

 Let's move the rock!

Inertia
It is inherent property of all bodies, by virtue of which it resists or opposes any change to it's present state of rest or of uniform motion. It varies directly as mass of the body.

Inertia of a body is of three types:

Inertia of rest
It is in ability of a body to change by itself or if state of rest. This means a body at rest remains at rest and cannot start moving on its own.

Inertia of motion
It is an ability of a body to change by itself its state of uniform motion that is a body in uniform motion can either accelerate no retard on its own and come to rest.

Inertia of direction
It is in ability of a body to change by itself its direction of motion

Exercise
