You are driving a car, doing about 25 miles per hour.
All the car windows are fully closed
Your ten year old daughter has left her Helium filled toy balloon floating, in the car.
It is pushing up against the slightly curved car roof as you drive.
It is not interfering with you.....since it is approximately
stuck in the CENTER of the cars roof, and therefore slightly behind you, and to one side. (depending whether you have a left or right hand drive)
An oncoming vehicle causes you to turn off to the right, not a fast turn, just a normal turn. You then apply the brakes and come to a normal stop.
QUESTION:- WHERE DO YOU THINK THE BALLOON WILL BE?
IN approx in the same place, center, as when you were driving?
OR some OTHER part of the car?

PLEASE do NOT post ANY answer HERE. You could spoil it for the dozens of others who may have different ideas.

You can click on my name for my Email, and post me an answer,
or if you prefer, post to Amaranth Rose II
