Question

# Pick the incorrect statement about inertia.

- Tendency of a body to be at rest
- Tendency of a body to be in motion
- Tendency of a body to move in one direction
- It is measured in Kg

Hint:

### The incorrect one is It is measured in Kg

## The correct answer is: It is measured in Kg

- Inertia is related to mass but but it is not a physical quantity
- From this ,It is clear that the property of the body which depends on the mass of the i.e the mass of an object is a measure of its inertia.
- Inertia has no units and no dimentions.
