Give two examples to show that greater the mass greater is the inertia of the body?
Inertia is the tendency of an object to resist changes in its state of motion and mass is the quantity of matter in the body. Mass is solely dependent upon inertia. The more the inertia an object has, the more mass it has.
Example:- (1) It is easy to push an empty book shelf than a book shelf full of books.
(2) It is easy to push a cycle than a truck.
