I know that Inertia is an objects resistance to a change in its velocity and Mass is the amount of Inertia which an object posseses so here is my question:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

When an object moves at an increasing velocity, wont the amount of force needed to change its velocity increase? Therefore the object has a greater inertia and therefore a greater mass.

Thanks

P.S If this question sounds a bit stupid its because I recently started Grade 11 at school in January and was just introduced to Momentum, Newtons Laws, Impulse and Inertia
