The car crashers into the tree beginning with kinetic energy which is soon converted into sound, heat, wave and kinetic energy. Heat energy creates friction when the car skids as the driver tries to dodge the tree at the last second. When the engine gets crumpled back towards the passenger compartment it also has heat energy which causes friction. Sound energy is created when the car hit the tree and also when it skids across the road. Wave energy is produced when the car collides with the tree which causes the metal parts of the car to crumple causing a wave of impact throughout the car. Kinetic energy is produced when the car hits the tree.
SUMMARY: An unknown author in the essay, Helmets: Life or Liberty? , published in November 2001, addresses the topic of whether wearing helmets should be an individual’s decision to make or whether it should be enforced by the law. The author claims that while it should be a person’s decision to wear a helmet or not, it is essential that they do so for safety reasons and not be persuaded not to because it is deemed “uncool” by society. The author supports their claim first by creating an emotional bridge between the readers and providing several scenarios in which people have experienced the consequences of not wearing helmets. Second by, establishing their credibility as a writer; the author utilizes the Rogerian model to assist and facilitate
“Click it or ticket.” This is a common phrase that most Americans know and follow responsibly. Forty-nine out of the fifty U.S. states require citizens to buckle up before driving, or they can be fined up to five hundred dollars. The question among the states has arisen as to whether seat belts should be essential or not. Seat belts should be mandatory because they reduce the risk of fatality, reduce economic costs and limit high-risk behavior.
To support this, “No amount of protection can stop the sudden acceleration and deceleration of the head that comes with blocking and attacking, which can cause the brain to slosh around inside the skull like yolk inside a vigorously shaken eggshell.” (Source #2). The evidence proves that no amount of protection can stop the head. Moreover, “No helmet can protect concussions entirely, says Rowson.” Source #1). One can interpret this as no helmet can protect your brain. Thus, some helmets aren't strong enough to protect the
How Newton 's second law applies to seatbelt as if you are not wearing one the faster the car and the force that the car crashes at will send you flying. If you are not traveling that fast you car will not be such a stop. But if you were to be speeding and then crash into something and come to a stop you will not stay in your seat the force of the crash will stop your car but you will not stop because there is nothing holding you back. This is why seatbelt a are so important because the seat belt will keep you strapped in you seat belt and will increase your chances of surviving.
Horseback riders should not have to wear a helmets because they are not worth the time or money. Helmets
Motor vehicle crashes are the number one cause of death for people ages 1-54 in the United States every year. Seat belts are the most effective way to prevent some of these deaths. With that being said, primary seat belt laws should be recognized and made illegal not to wear a seatbelt when riding in a car in all 50 states. While wearing a seat belt, injuries and fatalities are less likely to occur in an accident. Too many people disregard the risks they are taking when they choose not to wear a seatbelt in a car.
The way that society is in this generation makes people think that they are invincible and nothing can happen to them. Not wearing their seatbelts is one of the things that people believe they don’t have to do, and there will be no consequences. All it takes is one accident and all of those ideas and reasoning’s that people have will go out the window and reality sets in. Don’t be another statistic just put your seatbelt on and save everyone the headache. The law should always justify that seatbelts should be worn because it will dramatically cut down on injury, death, and traffic violations.
Skiers and snowboarders should be required to wear helmets for the safety of themselves and others. I am a skier and I wear a helmet when I ski even though I consider myself an advanced skier. I like to go off jumps and go down very steep slopes which are potentially dangerous. While I was skiing a couple weeks ago, I went off a jump and caught my ski on the ground, which caused me to crash. I had hyperextended my thumb pretty badly. Although I did not hurt my head, the helmet
Snowboarding helmets can be an arguable topic however one which I fall firmly on the ‘seasoned helmet’ facet of the fence. I’ve in my opinion been wearing a lid because I set foot on a board and had been so grateful for my mind cushion on many many events.
After this, we can conclude that helmet is not just safety equipment, but also personal signature of the biker who wears it. It talks a lot of a personality of the biker who wears it.
Technology may have brought forth newer and faster ways by which we can do our daily chores but it has also undeniably brought about new reasons for people to lose their lives or limbs. One such case is the invention of wheel and the consequent invention of the various modes of transportation such as cars, planes and trains.
In conclusion, statistics and Newton’s three laws of motion propose highly persuasive and logical reasoning for involuntary helmet use, safeguarding not only motorcyclist lives but other travelers as well. Although helmets are not guaranteed to save lives, helmet utilization has been the difference between life and death in many incidents in the past, but will continue to save lives if riders utilize helmets
Having been involved in the biking community since I was a teenager, I have encountered every kind of rider under the sun. They all seem to have their own rituals and traditions and idea of what is and isn’t important when they ride. Despite this, I remain absolutely amazed when I encounter a rider who doesn’t wear a helmet when they hit the road. It probably sounds just as crazy to you as it does to me, but there are many bikers out there who see helmets as a mere suggestion and not as an essential. Now, I know disobeying the rules is part of the whole biker lifestyle, but there is being a rebel and there is being an idiot, and those who neglect to protect their noggins while turning a corner at 200 miles per hour definitely fall into the
In Australia, a car driving on a bicycle lane or tailgating a bicycle will be fined up to 900 Australian Dollars. Through these few years, the news about bicycle accidents and their death tolls have been drastically increasing. In February 2013, Peter Root and Mary Thompson, a British couple that were cross-continental cyclers tragically lost their lives in a road accident in the eastern of Thailand. Not so long ago, on the 21st February 2015, Juan Francisco Guillermo, another round-the-world cyclist was savagely smashed by a pick-up truck and immediately killed in the north-east of Thailand. Even for experienced cyclers, the blood-stained roads in Thailand have been proved to be deadly. Needless to say more, if you are lucky enough to survive the uneven terrain roads and irresponsible vehicle drivers, who knows you might be attacked by ruthless and reckless racketeers who are aiming to deprive you of your money, belongings, bike, and even your dear life. One of the cases is that on the 2nd August 2015, an unfortunate cyclist, Thitiwat Rongthong was assaulted by 2 teenage racketeers with a 50cm sword and miraculously survived because of a
