Abstract: Quadratic forms on a free finite-dimensional module are investigated. It is shown that the inertial law can be suitably generalized provided the vector space is replaced by a free finite-dimensional module over a certain linear algebra over $\R$ ( real plural algebra) introduced in .
Keywords: linear algebra, free module, bilinear form, quadratic form, polar basis
