  2. 1. Newton's first law of motion states that an object in motion tends to stay in motion unless an opposing force stops it. Seat belts are basically life supports inside a car. So, if you were not wearing your seat-belt, you are most likely to go through the windshield during a crash. Also, If you happen to get in a crash and your not wearing a seat belt. The airbags will cause severe injuries. They come out at 400 mph which could likely kill you. So be safe and wear a seat-belt.

  3. 2. Gravity continues to push you down but Air resistance keeps you in the sky longer. So when you open the parachute you till are going down but the parachute slows you down.

    (I'm bad at explaining lol)
