This is more of a Physics question, but can you guys help? A bus and a bicycle have a head-on collision. Compare the force of impact between the bus and the bicycle; compare the accelerations of the bus and bicycle.

Hi! @Achilles_Suana ! Lets suppose the bus has a mass of 10,000kgms and the bicycle approx (with the rider on it) would be 100kg.

As you see that they're having an head on collision, the Force of impact would be the Same. What do you think will happen to their acceleration? (Naturally)

it would decrease?

LEts go via conservation of momentum m1v1 - m2v2 = (m1 + m2) *V(final)

  • shreehari499
we know that v(final) is almost equal to v1.
shreehari499
  • shreehari499
So the momentum of the bicycle will be 100* ( v2+v(final) )

while that of the bus will be almost Zero

So after collision, the acceleration of the bicycle increases while that of the bus would be almost zero..:)
