# What is inertia force?

It is important to learn many things in physics. Inertia Force is defined as a force opposite to an accelerating force acting on a body, and equal to the product of the accelerating force and the mass of the body.

### How does inertia play into causing the vehicle to maximize in performance?

Every type of vehicle performance is inertia VS applied force. So how fast will it accelerate: Inertia vs the power supplied by the engine How short a distance can it stop in: Inertia being reduced by braking force How hard can it turn a corner. Inertia trying to go in a straight line vs the force provided by the tires to turn the car. The ride is very hard: the springs provide a lot of…

### Is inertia a force?

Put simply, inertia is the measure of an object's reluctance to change its state of motion. The object's state of motion may be stationary or flying through space at 20,000 km/hr. The unit for measuring inertia in the SI is the same as for mass: the Kilogram. Inertia (mass) can be expected to increase when an object is traveling at relativistic (near the speed of light) speeds. Supervisor's note: The following answer is looking for…
