Inertia and conservation of momentum

  1. Apr 2, 2006 #1
    How are inertia (newton's first law) and the law of conservation of linear momentum related? Also, how does newton's first law for rotation (rotational inertia or moment of inertia) related to the law of conservation of angular momentum?
