Mass is the measure of inertia .Justify the statement

A body remains at rest or in motion in a straight line with uniform speed, unless it is acted upon by an external force. Thus, all objects resist the change in their state of motion. This resistance is known as the inertia of the body. Greater the inertia, greater will be the force required to bring a change in its state of rest or uniform motion. Hence, mass is a measure of inertia of the body.
For example, a real car has greater inertia than a toy car. If we move a real car, it will be quite difficult to move because of its high inertia and larger mass. But, if we move a toy car it will move a long wave. Thus, the real car resists a change in its state better than the toy car.

- explain the derivation of laws of motion
- A hockey ball of mass 200g travelling at 10m/s is struck by a hockey stick so as to return it along its original path with a velocity at 5m/s.Calculate the change of linear momentum occurred in the motion of the hockey ball by the force applied by the hockey stick.

- Two bodies have mass 10kg and 15kg have identical size. Which has more inertia?
- According to newton's first law of motion an object tends to remain at rest or in uniform motion until and unless and external forces acts on it so suppose a dog is sleeping and then suddenly it wakes up and starts walking so it has come into motion without any external force acting on it how
- What is there law of Newton?
- A hammer of mass 500g, moving at 50m/s, strikes a nail. The nail stops the hammer in a very short time of 0.01s. What is the force of the nail on the hammer?
