Why are the passengers thrown forward when a speeding bus stops suddenly?
Asked by Topperlearning User | 29 May, 2014, 06:11: PM
Expert Answer

This is due to inertia. When the speeding bus stops suddenly, lower part of the body comes to rest while the upper part of the body tends to maintain uniform motion. Hence, the passenger’s are thrown forward.
