1. Mass is a measure of inertia
True: inertia is dependent on mass. To define inertia, inertia is the resistance of matter in
a change in velocity. The objects mass is the measure in how hard you have to push an
object

1. T or F : Biomechanics is only a subset of kinesiology; all facets of biomechanics are
contained within kinesiology.
False. Kinesiology is the study of body movement and there are many fields and subsets
to consider when describing
