Reducing forces in car crashes
In a moving car the passengers and the driver all have momentum.
If the car crashes and comes to a sudden stop each of them will lose all their momentum. To make sure that the force on them is as small as possible, it is important that they stop gradually.
This is done with a seat belt, which stretches when the car stops moving, so that the person wearing the belt doesn't stop immediately.
Air bags have the same effect - they slow down the change in momentum, and so reduce the forces.
