Question: The amount of energy absorbed by a vehicle in an impact is related to __________.
A.) the direction of the impact.
B.) the design of the vehicle.
C.) speed and weight of the vehicle
D.) all of the above

Get the Correct ANSWER

all of the above

Explanation: The amount of energy that's absorbed by the vehicle is related to both the vehicle's design and the direction of the impact. More and more high tech research and development is being conducted to make cars safer and more reliable.

Get the Correct ANSWER

Laws of Motion


Question: A car crushing in a collision absorbs some of the force of the crash.
A.) TRUE
B.) FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

TRUE


Question: In a motor vehicle crash, as a car crushes, it absorbs some of the force of the collision.
A.) TRUE
B.) FALSE

Get the Correct ANSWER

TRUE

Explanation: Especially, cars are intended to crush and consume some of the collision. However, they cant crumple too enough or our legs will get crushed also, which is not good. Its all based on the postulate that the force of the collision is less if the entire deceleration takes place over a prolonged duration of time. The car crumpling tries to increase the deceleration time.


Question: Energy absorption in a crash is directly dependent on ________
Energy absorption in a crash is directly dependent on blank
A.) vehicle speed
B.) angles of collision
C.) areas of vehicle contacts
D.) all of the above

Get the Correct ANSWER

all of the above


Question: What is the definition of "potential energy"?
A.) Energy that is developed by an object while it's in motion

D.) A force at which the earth attracts another object towards itself

Get the Correct ANSWER

The energy that a piece of matter has because of its position or because of the arrangement of parts
