    A person in a moving vehicle is thrown forward when the vehicle stops suddenly. Why ?

    When a moving vehicle stops suddenly, a passenger will tend to fall forward because the lower part of his body in contact with the seat comes to stop suddenly but the upper part of his body is still in motion sharing the movement of the train. So on account of inertia, the passenger falls forward.
