How Do Airbags Help?
Dodgers stadium holds 56,000 fans. It is estimated that even more people than that have been saved by automotive airbags, just since 1987.
A reminder of physics: An object in motion has mass and velocity, creating kinetic energy. The greater the mass and velocity of an object, the greater the amount of kinetic energy it has. An object at rest will stay at rest, until acted upon by an outside force. Likewise, an object in motion will continue in motion until acted upon by other forces. When a car collides with an object, the kinetic energy does not simply disappear.
There are actually three (3) collisions: 1. The vehicle hits a tree at 30 mph; 2. The driver and passengers continue in motion at same velocity strike the inside of the car (including seat belts and air bags); 3. The organs of the humans continue in motion and compress internally.
The seat belt slows your midsection from forward motion, but your head continues forward and snaps back. Airbags are a supplementary restraint system, meaning they are intended to work alongside seatbelts and not be relied on instead of them.
