What does 'inertia' mean?
Answer inertia: a mass which resists change in its motion So that a planet doesnt run into the middle of the sun and burn and if earth did, we would melt because we would crash into the middle of the sun Inertia - resistance to change in motion. In other words, inertia is the tendency for a body at rest to remain at rest, and for a body in motion to remain in motion unless acted on by an outside force. ...
