You guys are close, but no cigar. What you are talking about is the *measurement* of inertia, not the concept!

The *concept* of inertia is the property of matter which determines its response to a given cause of motion. From this we conclude that the greater the tendency of an object to resist a change of velocity, the greater is its inertia. And it is then and only then that we can talk about how to measure it.
