# What Is Inertia?

Physics | 9-12 yrs | Animation, Video

Have fun while learning about Newton’s law of inertia through this animated learning module, which makes science look so simple and easy.

## What is the Law of Inertia?

When traveling in a train or any other vehicle, have you noticed how you continue to move forward when it stops.

You just experienced INERTIA!

Inertia is the tendency of a body to resist a change in motion or rest. When a vehicle stops, you tend to jerk forward before coming to a complete stop. In the same way, you will jerk backwards when the vehicle begins to move.

The phenomenon occurs because of Newton’s First Law of Motion: An object at rest (or motion ) will continue to be in the same state unless acted upon by an external force. Which means objects tend to “keep on doing what they’re doing,” unless disturbed.

cool

I get it! It’s so easy, I’ll recommend it to all my friends!

Inertia is a great way of safety

THANKS

12. Good question, Poopla! Inertia produces a thrilling acceleration force on roller coasters. It also keeps you in your seat at the top of a loop.

13. how is inertia experienced on a roller coaster?

14. Nisha

brilliant for understanding the law quickly.

15. Kind of helping but not that much I want an example of inertia
