# Which object has more inertia — a bowiing ball or a tennis ball?

The bowling ball has a higher inertia.

Linear inertia, or mass, is defined as the amount force needed to achieve a set level of acceleration. (This is Newton's Second Law)

An object with a low inertia will require a smaller acting force to be accelerated at the same rate as an object with a higher inertia and vice versa.

The greater the inertia (mass) of an object, the more force is needed to accelerate it at a given rate.

The smaller the inertia (mass) of an object, the less force is needed to accelerate it at a given rate.

Since inertia is simply just a measurement of mass, the bowling ball has a higher mass, thus inertia, than the tennis ball.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- An object with a mass of #10 kg# is on a plane with an incline of # - pi/4 #. If it takes #12 N# to start pushing the object down the plane and #4 N# to keep pushing it, what are the coefficients of static and kinetic friction?
- If an object with a mass of #10 kg # is moving on a surface at #15 ms^-1# and slows to a halt after # 4 s#, what is the friction coefficient of the surface?
- An object, previously at rest, slides #5 m# down a ramp, with an incline of #(3pi)/8 #, and then slides horizontally on the floor for another #15 m#. If the ramp and floor are made of the same material, what is the material's kinetic friction coefficient?
- An object with a mass of #5 # # kg# is on a surface with a kinetic friction coefficient of # 4 #. How much force is necessary to accelerate the object horizontally at # 6# #ms^-2#?
- If an object with a mass of #10 kg # is moving on a surface at #45 m/s# and slows to a halt after # 6 s#, what is the friction coefficient of the surface?
