Identify which of the following objects has the most inertia: 3 g gumball; 2 kg tennis ball; 2 g ping pong ball; 5 kg basketball. Explain your answer.


Answer 1

5 kg basketball has more inertia than others.

What is inertia?

According to the definition of inertia, matter has the ability to remain at rest or to move uniformly in a single direction unless applied with an external force.

For stationary or linearly moving material, mass acts as inertia of the object. Given objects are:  3 g gumball; 2 kg tennis ball; 2 g ping-pong ball; 5 kg basketball.  Among these objects, the basketball has the most amount of mass. So, the basketball will have the most inertia.

Hence, the 5 kg basketball has the most inertia.

Answer 2
Answer: 5 kg basketball. Inertia is related to the mass of the object.

Speed is always relative to something.
There's no such thing as "real" speed.

A Cessna 150 aircraft has a lift-off speed of approximately 125 km/h. What minimum constant acceleration does this require if the aircraft is to be airborne after a take-off run of 205 m? Answer in units of m/s 2 .


The minimum acceleration is


The motion of the Cessna is a uniformly accelerated motion, so we can use the following suvat equation:


v is the final velocity of the Cessna

u is the initial velocity

a is the acceleration

s is the distance covered when accelerated from u to v

Assuming the Cessna starts from rest, we have:

u = 0

The final velocity (lift-off speed) is:

While the maximum distance that the aircraft can cover is:

s = 205 m

Therefore, the minimum acceleration that the Cessna should have is:
