Which object has more inertia
a) A pingpong ball rolling a 2 m/s
b) A bowling ball rolling at 1m/s
c) A car rolling at 5 m/s
d) A tractor trailor rig moving at 2 m/s

A force is a

d) all of the above

An accelerating car
a) has an unbalanced for acting on it
b) has balanced forces acting on it.
c) has a constant velocity.

A rock sitting on a table has
a) a velocity of 0 m/s

Two books are laying on a table top. With out picking them up how could you determine which has the greatest inertia
a) look at them the larger one will have more inertia
b) neither one has inertia they are not moving
c) it is impossible to tell
d) give each one a push, the one that moves the easiest has less mass thus less inertia
