. The inertia of an object tends to cause the object
A: to increase its speed
B: to decrease its speed
C: to resist any change in its state of motion
D: to decelerate due to friction
The inertia is the physical property of a body of an object tends to cause the object to resist any change in its state of rest or motion. The inertia is directly dependent on the mass of the body. The object will stay at rest if it is at rest or will stay in motion if the object is already in motion.
Option C is correct
