Inertia

Inertia

Inertia is actually not a force at all,but rather a property that all things have due to the fact that they have mass.Inertia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion (including a change in direction).On the surface of the Earth inertia is often masked by the effects of friction and Air Resistance, both of which tend to decrease the speed of moving objects (commonly to the point of rest), and Gravity. This misled classical theorists such as Aristole, who believed that objects would move only as long as force was applied to them.
