Question 4

Why do you fall in the forward direction when a moving bus brakes to a stop and fall backwards when it accelerates from rest?


When a moving bus stops suddenly, the passengers are jerked forward because of inertia the passengers tend to remain in their state of motion even though the bus has come to rest and we fall backwards when bus starts suddenly from rest because of inertia, passengers tend to remain in state of rest though bus starts moving. Hence, the passenger tends to fall backwards when the bus accelerates forward.
