Newton proposed the concept of inertia. According to him, an object at rest stays at rest and an object in motion stays in motion unless acted upon by an unbalanced force. This is the principle of inertia. The tendency of the body to resist a change in motion is called its inertia. You can demonstrate this principle with a simple experiment.

Ward's® Triple Beam Balance
This economical introductory balance is designed for quality and durability.
Ring and Disk Moment of Inertia Apparatus
Use this handy apparatus to help students study the dependence of moment of inertia on the distribution of mass. It's easy to see differences in acceleration when the metal ring and wooden disk of the same mass are rolled on the provided inclined plane.
Dual Calibration Spring Scales
The body tube is constructed of clear plastic with color-coded plastic ends, and chrome-plated hooks and rings. The top of each spring is leveled for easy use on an inclined plane.
