Homework Help: physics air bags

Posted by clay on Thursday, October 15, 2009 at 3:21am.

The longer the impact time of an impulse, the smaller the force can be for the same momentum change, and hence the smaller the deformation of the object on which the force acts. On this basis, explain the value of air bags, which are intended to inflate during an automobile collision to reduce the possibility of fracture or death.
