Why do passengers in a bus tend to fall backward when it starts suddenly?

due to sudden change in gravity ..imbalances ..


Why do passengers in a bus tend to fall backward if it starts suddenly?

It's because of inertia. You are not falling backward technically, rather the bus' acceleration is moving it forward however your inertia is stopping you from moving. So the bus is moving forward while you remain still. It is like the trick when someone pulls a cloth from under a bowl of water very quickly. The cloth comes away cleanly and the bowl does not budge. By the way inertia is the resistance an object (here the object is the passenger in the bus) has to having its state of motion change (that is in this case the passengers are resisting changing their movement from being still to actually moving).


Do the velocity of falling objects does not change?

If there is no air resistance, they will fall faster and faster.If there is air resistance, they will eventually approach a "terminal velocity", a maximum speed, at which the downward pull of Earth is counteracted by the backward pull of air resistance.If there is no air resistance, they will fall faster and faster.If there is air resistance, they will eventually approach a "terminal velocity", a maximum speed, at which the downward pull of Earth is counteracted by the backward pull of air resistance.If there is no air resistance, they will fall faster and faster.If there is air resistance, they will eventually approach a "terminal velocity", a maximum speed, at which the downward pull of Earth is counteracted by the backward pull of air resistance.If there is no air resistance, they will fall faster and faster.If there is air resistance, they will eventually approach a "terminal velocity", a maximum speed, at which the downward pull of Earth is counteracted by the backward pull of air resistance.

When a train suddenly moves forward the passenger standing in the compartment tends to fall backward?

Yes--because of Newton's first law, the passenger wishes to stay in its constant state of motion, which is standing still in this case. Hence, when the train starts to move forward, the passenger will want to stay at the point he/she was and will fall backwards.


Does gravity work in water?

YES for example if you stand on water you fall so it does and if your still saying does it work in the water well if i put your feet 5 centimeters in water you would still fall down.
