    Vehicle Safety Features

    Your task is to identify social issues, such as cost benefit analysis, requiring or arising from the development of safety features for vehicles, to research information about the issues you have identified, and to create a communication product to synthesize your analysis of the issues.

    1. What physics principles are applied to the design and use of your chosen safety device?

    - What physics principles would apply to vehicles? would i be able to talk about momentum when in a car accident and how the safety features help prevent you.
    Thanks and i appreciate any feedback

    Why is the begining of your post written in the second person? Have you read Italo Calvino's "If on a winter's night a traveler"? I think he discusses seatbelts in chapter 3.
