What makes air bags pop out?



  1. 0 Votes

    After your head hits the nitrogen-filled bag, the bag deflates by releasing the gas through tiny holes. The cloud of smoke that fills the vehicle, is actually talcum powder or cornstarch. The powder prevents the bag from sticking to itself, while it’s folded inside. The nitrogen gas that is released from the tiny holes is absolutely harmless (nitrogen actually constitutes 78% of the air that we inhale). One just needs to open the doors or windows for the gas and the powder to escape.
