why do passengers standing in a stationary bus lean backwards as the bus starts?
Asked by sneha.saurav20 | 12th Jul, 2015, 12:44: PM
When a passenger in sitting or standing in a stationery bus, both the bus and the passenger are at rest. When the bus starts moving suddenly, the lower part of the passenger’s body starts moving forward with the bus. The upper part of the body tends to remain in the position of rest due to its inertia of rest. As a result, therefore, the passenger falls or leans backwards as the bus starts.

- explain the derivation of laws of motion
- A hockey ball of mass 200g travelling at 10m/s is struck by a hockey stick so as to return it along its original path with a velocity at 5m/s.Calculate the change of linear momentum occurred in the motion of the hockey ball by the force applied by the hockey stick.

- According to newton's first law of motion an object tends to remain at rest or in uniform motion until and unless and external forces acts on it so suppose a dog is sleeping and then suddenly it wakes up and starts walking so it has come into motion without any external force acting on it how
