Intro

I am going to tell you about the Hummer, Mustang and airbags and how they work

How Airbags Work 

This paragraph is about how they inflate. According to Wikipedia, most vehicles are inflated using hot gasses.  That is why you can get burned in the face or chest.  It takes awhile for it to heal. (Wikipedia.com)  I think that the airbags are pretty coolJ

This paragraph is about how fast they are.   According to Wikipedia, the airbag inflates in less than 5 seconds. The newer airbags trigger at a lower speed  (Wikipedia.org).I think that is amazing.  

 

History of Airbags

The first airbag was used in the War world 2. Then in the 1980Ős airbags started appearing in cars, (howstuffworks.com) I think the war world 2 was pretty lucky that they were the first ones to use the airbag. In the 1980Ős airbags started appearing in cars, then the airbag inflates less than 5 seconds.  Newer airbags trigger at a lesser speed.  Most vehicles are inflated using hot gasses then you can get burned in the face, chest and it takes awhile for it to heal.

 

 

Other Interesting Things

Many people wonder how much money airbags cost, airbags cost 500dollars per vehicle but if the airbag gets stolen the owner has to repurchase the airbag, according to Wikipedia the airbag saves up to 400 lives a year and that Is 6,ooo total and when seatbelts are worn they save 8% of lives. (Wikipedia) it sounds like the airbag doesnŐt cost that much money. And I think that is amazing for how many lives airbags save.
