 Dantheshwar said: (Sep 5, 2011) The property of matter by which it retains its state of rest or its velocity along a straight line so long as it is not acted upon by an external force. So the object or passenger moves forward direction.

 Purva M. Parmar said: (Aug 29, 2014) When we are in a moving bus, we too are in motion. When the bus stops suddenly, our feet which are in contact with bus come to rest immediately, but our upper part of body is still in motion. So due to inertia of motion, we lean forward.

 Devesh Singh said: (Sep 10, 2014) Because our body in motion when bus is running. Bus is suddenly stop then our body is suddenly comes in rest that's why our body is going forward.

 Milton Henschel Aboagye said: (Jul 9, 2016) Our body is said to be in motion whenever a bus we are in starts to move. Our body will be forced to stop moving when the bus comes to rest unexpectedly or suddenly. Due to this unexpected occurrence, our body will be forced to go forward due to inertia which is associated with motion.
