What happens to the human body during an airplane crash (both while it is falling and after it crashes)

In: Physics

What exactly are you asking here? The answer seems pretty obvious though vague as is the question.

While still in the air nothing happens (besides probably being scared) and when it hits the ground there are going to be injuries the level of which depend on how hard/fast it crashes.

As far as injury. Most crashes themselves are relatively survivable. It’s usually the post crash fire/smoke inhalation that ends up being the killer. Most planes don’t just smack nose first into the ground. A semi controlled crash by itself isn’t a death sentence.
