What Is a Measure of Inertia?

Answer

The quantity measure for inertia is mass. Inertia is the tendency of a body to maintain its state of rest or motion and the degree of this tendency of resisting change is directly proportional to the mass of that object. Inertia is felt when a car accelerates then stops suddenly.
