When an astronaut lands on the moon his inertia would be less more or same?

Inertia is related to MASS. MASS is a property of matter. Matter is the same on the Earth or on the Moon. Therefore his inertia would be the same.

Is weight of a body is a measure of inertia?

No, a body's inertia is related to its mass and movement. Weight is related to a body's mass in a gravity field without movement.

The property of matter that resists change in motion?

That is called inertia. Inertia is directly related to mass, so it can be expressed in kilograms.

What is the property of all matter and it is directly related to how much matter or mass you have?

Could be one of two things: * Inertia; * Gravitational attraction. Both apply to all matter and are directly related to the mass.

What is the tendency of matter to resist change in motion?

Inertia: the property of matter that resists changes in motion.

How are inertia mass and force related?

Inertia is matter's unwillingness to slow down, speed up, or change direction in any way. It is also related to the matter's momentum. Momentum is caused by the body's velocity as well as the body's direction. If the velocity of the matter is increasing, or the body changes its direction, it can be said that the body of mass is experiencing inertia. When the body is accelerating (changing in velocity), the momentum of the matter is also changing (F=ma), thus mass and acceleration is related by momentum through inertia.
