There are two types of force Attraction and repulsive force between the particles of the solid. When the solid is stretched, the molecules displaced away from each other Attractive forces are acting to oppose the stretching When the solid is compressed, the molecules displaced closer to each other Repulsive forces are acting to oppose the compression The inertia of lorry and load is very big when it is moving The separate compartments make the load divided into smaller mass, thus reducing the ineatia of each unit. The momentum of lorry and load is very big when it is moving and produce abigger impulsive force.
