Technically it would be kinetic energy.

But the only good way for that to happen would be if the bus drove off a cliff.

The potential energy of a bus typically changes into kinetic energy for the bus to move. When the bus starts moving, the stored potential energy is converted into the energy of motion, resulting in the bus's kinetic energy.

When the bus starts moving its potential energy will change to kinetic energy.

The pistons of a bus move to make the wheels move.

### Why it is dangerous to move out of a moving bus?

because in the bus we are in motion and as soon as we move out there is sudden jerk because of inertia of motion.

### What were the central points of Dr. King's philosophy?

Rosa Parks was arrested for refusing to move to the back of the bus. Shortly after Dr. King helped to organize the bus boycott, just another great example of Dr. Kings's use of nonviolent protest in social change.

### Why should a passenger hold on to prevent himself from swaying in a turning bus?

the passengers should hold on to the bus so that their upper part of the body also comes in contact with the bus as the lower part (feet), as the bus moves forward , backward , sideways or if it stops there wont be any change in the passenger's body's inertia. and the passengers will move as the bus does.

### A man standing on a bus remains still when the bus is at rest When the bus moves forward and then slows down the man continues moving forward at the original speed This is an example of the effect o?

This is an example of the property of inertia. It is a body of mass' tendency to resist change in motion. The man was in motion at the speed of the bus. When the bus slows, the mass of the man resists change in motion and continues to move forward. It's basically the rebelliousness of matter.

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

The passenger tends to move backward when the bus starts because of inertia. The passenger's body wants to stay at rest due to Newton's First Law of Motion, so when the bus accelerates forward, the passenger appears to move backward relative to the bus.
