Jenny is riding on a bus. She has been unable to find a seat and so she is standing in the aisle. Explain, in physics laws and principles, why it is important that she hold onto something while she is completing her journey.

  • physics -

    During acceleration (or deceleration) of the bus, she continues to move in previous derection due to inertia, and, therefore, she may fall down.

    thank you :)
