Use the Inertia tool in the Measure toolbar, usually found in menu bar on the bottom of the screen.

The icon looks like a small brass weight.

Once the Inertia panel is open, there's a customize option to turn on/off additional properties.

Don't forget to use the Apply Material in order to define the material densisty required for some of the Inertia measures.
