When a bus suddenly takes a turn the passengers are thrown outwards because of inertia of direction.
An inability of an object to chnage its direction of motion by itself is called inertia of direction.
When a bus is running along a straight line path, the passengers also move with the same speed in a straight line but when the bus takes a turn suddenly, the upper portion if the body of passengers continues to be in straight line motion while the lower portion of body tends to take a turn along with the bus and passengers tend to fall outwards.
