Definitions for "Inert"
Indisposed to move or act; very slow to act; sluggish; dull; inactive; indolent; lifeless.
Not having or manifesting active properties; not affecting other substances when brought in contact with them; powerless for an expected or desired effect; as, the noble gases are chemically inert.
Gases which do not react with other materials at ordinary temperature and pressure are classified as inert. They do not represent a hazard unless they are released in a confined space, thereby displacing the amount of oxygen necessary to support life. Use of adequate ventilation and monitoring of the oxygen content in confined places will minimize the danger of asphyxiation.
Destitute of the power of moving itself, or of active resistance to motion; as, matter is inert.
The inert [from the Latin for "idle" - in the sense of "unskilled, and therefore unable to work"] mode of the idler can be misleading. For, as Dr. Johnson writes, "the diligence of an Idler is rapid and impetuous, as ponderous bodies forced into velocity move with violence proportionate to their weight." See: DO-NOTHING, SLOTHFUL.
