name and define three different types of inertia and give an example each

Three types of inertia are:

1). Inertia of rest: The ability of a body to resist any change in its state of rest.

2). Inertia of motion: The ability of a body to resist any change in its state of motion.

3). Inertia of rotation/direction: The ability of a body to resist any change in its state of rotation (or direction) is inertia of rotation.

examples - 

Inertia of rest:  when the bus starts and moves forward we are pushed backward

Inertia of motion: when a moving bus stops suddenly we fall forwards

Inertia of direction: when the bus suddenly takes turn we fall in the direction opposite to it.
