Swedish tourist killed in Pattaya motorcycle crash

If the report was correct then the fact that this happened in Thailand seems irrelevant.  Most likely he was drunk and caused the accident by his own stupidity.  Having a big bike isn't going to kill you any more than a scooter will.

Force =  mass times acceleration.

Thrapaya (my spelling) is a favorite to "let it out" and when I hear a cyclist roaring away up from the bottom of 3rd road followed, soon after by Sirens, I think, who in the hell were they trying to impress. Mostly 28-38 year olds showing their stuff. Hoping their act was a single show.

When will they ever learn?

 

RIP.

 

I listened to Pete Seeger asking that, but 60, 70 years on, nobody seemed to have learned poo. Sad, really.

If velocity is constant there is no force.

In the Swede's case, he allegedly swerved right to avoid a car parked on the roadside prior to his crash. That maneuver might have resulted in deceleration or negative acceleration.

So the formula becomes:

F = m * [(v - v0)/t]

where "v" is initial velocity and "v0" is final velocity, "t" is the time span between initial and final velocity.

I didn't gather he was riding a big bike.

 

But I think death  or dismemberment is entirely possible on any size bike, especially in Thailand.

 

Learned or not if he has family  and friends they have my sympathy.

yes looks like an 'offroad' bike with offroad tyres, those knobblies are frightening on a wet road. 

No them tyres on a wet road are lethal and not made for road use.

So, an object of smaller mass can generate the same energy as a more massive object? Does a moving object have energy due to its constant motion? Do both of said objects transfer equal energy upon impact with equal bodies?

Thanks for the physics cock waving session. 

 

Back to the OP........very sad. RIP.  Thoughts are with all your family and loved ones.

Entirely dependant on the ratio of pot-holes to smooth road taking into account the distance between the pot-holes and the individual knobbles.

Drain covers should also be factored in.

Your estrogenic virtue signalling suggests that  you ride a little scooter. Some times we men can be overly analytical. Thus  - in order to maintain  balance - we need  a woman's input. Thank you.

Your ridiculous attempt at a put down suggests you have a little ............oh never mind. 

 

This is about a man that tragically died.

Truth is in thailand you can be horribly killed even if you're not driving....someone could crash int you anytime 

anywhere....the idea is to maintain 100% situational awareness....very hard nowadays due to the habit

people have of looking at their phone while on the go.

 

The times when I do ride a bike, I drive like an old lady. Seems to work so far.

Yeah dangers everywhere, even yesterday walking down Klang i noticed 5 wires sticking out which i had to dodge + various potholes.

As for motorbikes, if you are tucked up in bed before midnight its far less dangerous

Speed kills , and bike riding is not safe in Thailand , even if you wear a helmet.  RIP.

Why are you referencing  male genitalia for a second time?
