There are three solids made up of aluminium, steel and wood, of the same shape and same volume. Which of them would have highest inertia?

Answer:
Steel has the highest inertia. As the mass is a measure of inertia, the ball of same shape and size, having more mass than other balls will have highest inertia. Since steel has greatest density and greatest mass, therefore, it has highest inertia.
