### Why a passenger standing in a fully loaded bus which is at rest tends to move backward when the driver suddenly starts the bus?

This is what we call "Inertia of Rest" The upper portion remains at rest though the feet attached to the bus starts moving. So relatively the head has to go back as it lags. So he falls backward. By holding the rod above the head with a grip the passenger pulls his head forward so as to avoid falling back. As the bus moves with uniform motion then whole body will be in motion. Same way as the driver applies brake and brings the bus to rest, the passenger falls forward. This is due to "intertia of motion"
