1. First example of inertia of rest: Fall of dust particles from a duration or cloth: We all have seen that the dust particles in a duration or cloth fall off when it is beaten with a stick. This is due to the reason that the beating results in motion of duration but the dust particles remain at rest. Thus dust particles fall off. This is one of the examples of inertia of rest.

2. Second example of inertia of rest: Fall of rider backwards: You must have also noticed that the rider of a horse falls backwards, when a horse starts suddenly. This is also due to inertia of rest of upper part of the body of the rider.

3. Third example of inertia of rest: Fall of coin into the glass: Let us play a simple game or experiment to understand the inertia of rest.
