What is a Newton’s first law

It is that a resultant force I needed to make something to start moving speed up or slow down.

If the resultant force on a stationary object is zero, the object will remain stationary. If the resultant force on a moving object and zero, it’ll just carry on moving at the same velocity

What is Newton’s second law?

Force = mass x acceleration

N kg m/s2

3

Why can large deceleration be dangerous?

As they can can cause serious injuries
Using collisions zones which reduces force. Crumple zones are at the front and back of the Vehicle which crumple in a collision
