  1. inactiveness: a disposition to remain inactive or inert; "he had to overcome his inertia and get back to work"
  2. (physics) the tendency of a body to maintain its state of rest or uniform motion unless acted upon by an external force

  11. is the opposition of a body to a change in velocity when acted on by an external force. The motor’s force must overcome the inertia of the load, coupling components, and motor rotor.
  12. A property of matter by which it remains at rest or in uniform motion in the same straight line unless acted upon by some external force.
  13. The tendency of an object to continue in motion at the same speed and in the same direction, unless acted upon by a force.
  14. The physical property of an object to resist changes in velocity when acted upon by an outside force. Inertia is dependent upon the mass and shape of an object.
  15. A property of matter that causes it to resist changes in speed or direction (velocity).
  16. Inertia is a tendency of an object to resist change in its state of motion. More massive objects have more inertia; that is, they have more tendency to resist changes in the way they are moving. An elephant has a lot of inertia, for example. ...
  17. A descriptive term for that property of a body which resists change in its motion. Two kinds of changes of motion are recognized: changes in translational motion, and changes in rotational motion.
  18. In the context of climate change mitigation, inertia relates to the difficulty of change resulting from pre-existing conditions within society such as physical man-made capital, natural capital, and social non-physical capital, including institutions, regulations, and norms. ...

  20. quality of being difficult to move or change
  21. Inertia is the tendency to remain in a fixed condition without change. For example, resistance to change.
  22. Inertia is a property of matter: a mass at rest remains at rest and a mass in motion remains in motion as long as no outside force acts upon it.
  23. The ability of an object to resist acceleration or deceleration. Inertia can be broadly equated with mass.
