Question 2

When a carpet is beaten with a stick, dust comes out of it. Explain.


When a carpet is beaten with a stick, the dust comes out of it because of the law of inertia. Initially the dust particles are at rest along with the carpet but, the dust particles try to resist their state of rest. According to Newton’s first law of motion, the dust particles stay in a state of rest, while the carpet moves. Hence, the dust particles come out of the carpet.
