Jumping out of a moving bus (quick question)

  1. Sep 9, 2009 #1
    If the bus is moving back and I want to jump out of the bus. Which direction do I have jump from the door. Is relative velocity related to this?

    If the bus is moving backwards, don't jump behind the bus, pretty much independant of the speed.

    Cheers

    So jump from the front to cancel the force of the bus. Relative velocity is not related to this right. My friend confused me telling it was.

    inertness. if the bus is moving backwards, you need to jump forward to balance "the moving" or something.
