I have heard that when the speed of the object increase, the mass of the object also increase. (Why does an object with higher speed gain more (relativistic) mass?) So inertia which is related to ...
Imagine a man is running on a treadmill. His inertia with respect to floor will be zero because he is not moving with respect to floor. If both he and the tread mill suddenly stops he will not fall, ...
