The mass of an object corresponds to it's inertia.

The greater an objects mass the greater it's inertia.

mass corresponds to inertia there isn't any mathematical relationship

The inertia of an object is directly proportional to its mass. The greater the mass the greater the inertia and the lower the mass the lower the inertia. This tells us the fat person will have more inertia due to his greater mass and the thin person will have less inertia due to his lower mass.

what is the relationship between mass and inertia

Resistance or disinclination to motion, action, or change: the inertia of an entrenched bureaucracy.

The inertia of a body can be defined as the relunctance of a body to acceleration. The mass of a body can be defined as a measure of the inertia of a body. This is because acceleration = resultant force / mass. So, if mass is greater, the less will be the acceleration of the body and hence the greater the inertia.

Greater the mass higher the inertia.

Mass is the amount of matter inside an object and inertia is the amount of force it takes to move an object (ex. an elephant has more inertia than a feather)

Force and inertia are not the same. They are quite different. They do both have a relationship to the motion of objects having mass.

Mass is a measure of inertia. Inertia is resistance to a change in motion. Mass and inertia are directly proportional. The greater the mass, the greater the inertia.

Mass is the measure of inertia and if you change the mass the inertia will change.

Inertia is directly related to mass. More mass means more inertia.

Inertia is the resistance to a change in motion. Most likely you've felt this in a car when it speeds up quickly and it feels like you're sinking into the seat back. Or, when the car brakes hard and your body moves forward. The relationship between inertia and mass is that the greater the mass, the greater the inertia.

No. Inertia is mass in motion while mass is exactly that, mass.

higher inertia higher mass

inertia is directly proportion to the mass.

Yes, because inertia is directly related to the mass of an object ; the greater the mass the greater the inertia.

the greater the mass of an object, the more inertia it has, so to answer your ? yes inertia changes depending on mass :]

The amount of mass affects the amount of inertia. The greater the mass, the more inertia it possesses.

inertia inertia inertia

What effects inertia is the object's MASS. Inertia is directly proportional to the Object's MASS

Inertia is related to the mass, and it is proportional to the mass. When measuring things, you will usually measure the mass, not the inertia - but it basically amounts to the same. Just consider the mass to be what gives an object its inertia.

By definition, mass is the measure of the inertia of a body, so if mass increases, inertia increases.

Because after much investigation, experiment, and experience, in laboratories of Physics all over the world, it has been determined that there is more inertia where there is more mass, and less inertia where there is less mass. Moreover, through careful measurement, it has been possible to quantify the relationship, and to demonstrate, analytically and conclusively, that intertia is precisely and directly proportional to mass, and that where there is no mass, inertia is zero. Be that as it may, and when all is said and done, it became clear that mass is like unto no other quantity as a worthy and proper surrogate for inertia.

No it depends on mass.
