Expert Answer:

Inertia of motion: It is the property of a body by virtue of which a body continues to be in the state of motion in a straight line unless acted upon by an external force.
Inertia of rest: It is the property of a body by virtue of which it continues to be in the state of rest unless acted upon by an external force.
