Hey everyone! I love this site!
Im doing a project on Inertia and I need to know the Formula. Does anyone know what it is?

Is there really a formula for intertia? Isn't it just mass? The tendency for a mass to remain at constant velocity/rest. Mass and/or inertia is like a measure of resistance in a change of velocity. So the higher the mass the more force you need to accelerate it at a certain rate.

Yes.. Inertia is just the property which defines the resistance the moving or a stable object offers towards the external applied force. as the mass of the object increases its inertia increase.. its not quantifiable...
