# Would you agree with this? "Objects with mass has a property called inertia, Inertia means that objects has a tendency to resist all changes in motion that effects the object ",

## "Objects with mass has a property called inertia, Inertia means that objects has a tendency to resist all changes in motion that effects the object ". Hence why for example when we're in an airplane our bodies get pushed back into the seats due to our bodies tries to reject change in motion. Do you agree, tell me what parts you agree with and the parts that you don't agree with. Thanks!

Yes- that is basically Newton's first law.

#### Explanation:

According to Wikipedia:
Interia is the resistance of any physical object to any change in its state of motion. This includes changes to the objects speed, direction, and state of rest.

This is related to Newton's First law, which states:
"An object will remain at rest unless acted upon by an external force". (though somewhat simplified).

If you've ever been standing in a bus that is moving, you will notice that you have a tendency to be "thrown forward"(in the direction of travel) when the bus brakes to stop at the station and that you will be "thrown backward" when the bus starts moving again. This is because your body resists the change in motion, due to your inertia.

This is also why we must wear seatbelts in a car. Due to your inertia, your body will resist the change in motion due to a sudden stop (like a crash) and keep moving forward- which is why you must be strapped to your seat in case something were to happen.
