### Is a measure of an objects velocity the same as the measure of the objects inertia?

No.Consider a grain of rice and a banana. If you threw these at someone so that they were moving at the same speed, their velocities would be the same.However, you would hardly feel the impact of the grain of rice but the banana would hurt.The force of the impact is a measure of the relative inertia of the two objects.Where two objects are traveling at the samevelocity, the inertia is greater in that object that has the greatest mass.
