# Gravitational Mass

• Does inertia cease to act when gravitational mass is under consideration?

• What is the difference between Inertial mass and gravitational mass(if any)?

Reference to books and other resources are most welcome

INERTIA NEVER CEASE , AND THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE INERTIAL MASS AND THE GRAVITATIONAL MASS AS BOTH OF THEM DEPENDS ON THE ACCELRATION

Inertial mass is a quantitative measure of an object's resistance to changes in velocity, (acceleration).

Gravitational mass is a quantitative measure that is proportional to the magnitude of the gravitational force which is

exerted by an object (active gravitational mass), or
experienced by an object (passive gravitational force) when interacting with a second object.
