Textbook Problem

What direction will a helium balloon move inside a car that is slowing down—toward the front or back? Explain your answer.

To determine

The direction in which the helium balloon will move inside a car that is slowing down.

Explanation

According to first law of inertia, an object does not change its state of motion until an unbalance force is not applied on it. When the car is slowing down, the air molecules present in the car will start moving in the forward side of the car. More molecules now build up on the forward side of the car due to which the air at forward side becomes denser than at the back side of the car...
