A mosquito inside a car is not hit by the back wall when the car starts moving.Why?

  • physics -

    The air inside the car moves with the car. As far as the mosquito is concerned, it is in still air. There will be a pressure gradient in the air to accelerate the mosquito. For a larger object like a human, the air forces will not be enough to keep from moving backwards.
