Is there something that you can either love or hate, but can’t live without? Physics!
According to Newton’s Law of Motion,
Wondering why Physics class in an auto portal?
Like every other object in the universe, or atleast the world, cars are also controlled by the laws of physics. So, according to Newton’s second law of motion, the heavier your car and faster you go, you create more force i.e more Kinetic Energy.
Imagine yourself in this situation. You are cruising on a highway in your car. You can see a broken-down truck pulled over on the left of the road. When you are just inches closer to crossing the truck, a smartly dressed professional sales guy on his first day of his job, on his brand new bike, comes out of nowhere in front of your car!
Screeeetchhhhh….. Bang! Pufff…… Sssssssshhhhhhhhh……
You wake up to see a tree right where your engine should have been and don’t mistake the white smoke for a fog! Unbuckle yourself from the seats and slowly walk out of the car undamaged, the crowd sees you with wide eyes. How is this even possible?
Airbags are technically called Supplementary Restraint Systems (SRS). You were mistaken if you thought SRS is an Airbag manufacturer. The name says it all, it supplements the seatbelts to restrain your body movement during an impact.
Now think of the same situation without the Airbags. You wouldn’t have seen the tree but just the fog, maybe!
So, a moving car has kinetic energy and the tree brings your car to a sudden stop. An equal and opposite force is created which has to go somewhere. Your car’s crumple zones absorb some of the impact and the rest is transferred to the car and of course you! You are restrained to the car with the seatbelt but your head that has the brain that wanted to save the smartly dressed professional sales guy isn’t!
So, it is the Airbags that saved your life! Ever wondered how an airbag works?
Now I wonder, what if we replace the soft powder with talcum powder and the explosive gas with Nitrous Oxide. After every crash, people would walk out fair and laughing, the world would just become a better place!
Although the system is designed with utmost care, there are some important points to remember:
Buckle up! Drive Safe!
