When you take off in a jet aircraft, there is a sensation of being pushed back into the seat. Explain why you move backward in the seat—is there really a force backward on you? (The same reasoning explains whiplash injuries, in which the head is apparently thrown backward.)
Step 1 of 4
We need to state and explain about the force that acts on a person inside a jet due to which he is pushed back into seat, when the jet aircraft takes off. Here the effect is similar to the whiplash injuries, in which the head of the person is pushed backwards.
Yes, there is a force that is acting on the person due to which he is pushed backwards when the jet takes off. Such forces act in pairs, which can be explained using Newton’s laws of motion.
