In the coin and card experiment to prove inertia of rest, we see that when the card is flicked suddenly, the coin is left behind. But when the card is pushed slowly, the coin moves along with it. Why does not inertia of rest act on the coin then? If it is friction, then why does it not act on the coin when the card is flicked suddenly?
