Why airbags are important?
Airbags in cars reduce the life of the driver and passenger sitting next to them in an accident. As soon as the car collides, they open like a balloon, and the people sitting in the car do not hit the dashboard or steering of the car and lose their lives.
how airbags work?
There is an impact sensor on the bumpers of the car. As soon as the vehicle collides with something, a small current gets into the airbag system with the help of the impact sensor, and the sodium azide gas inside the airbags is filled with that gas. The gas form comes into play before it is filled with some other form, such as the Impact Sensor sends the current, that thing is converted into gas.
