coefficient of inertia

"It is to this fundamental property of the invari-


ability of the mass that we had always to come back. Philosophers and scholars long ago gave up seeking an exact definition of matter. The invariability of the mass of a given quantity of substance - that is to say, its coefficient of inertia measured by its weight, remained the sole irreducible characteristic of matter." [THE THEORY OF INTRA-ATOMIC ENERGY AND THE PASSING-AWAY OF MATTER.]
