# Why carpets are beaten?

An object’s inertia tends to resist any change in its state of rest or motion. If a carpet is beaten with a stick, then the carpet begins to move. But, the particles of dust are trying to resist their state of rest. The concept can be explained based on Newton’s first law of motion.

Carpeting equals dust. The more you walk on it, the more dust it creates. Plus, it holds onto the dust and dust mites. Yes, I said “mites” which means buggies.

Why is it so hard to maintain carpet?

Just like I said in the maintenance reason, carpet is impossible to keep one hundred percent clean because dirt will accumulate under the weave and padding. You may not see it, but it is always lurking underneath.

## What happens when a carpet is beaten with a stick?

When a carpet is beaten with a stick, the dust comes out of it because of law of inertia. Initially the dust particles are at rest along with the carpet.

A query we ran across in our research was “When a hanging carpet is beaten with a stick?”.

When a hanging carpet is beaten using a stick, the dust particles will start coming out of the carpet because the part of the carpet where the stick strikes, immediately come in motion while the dust particle sticking to the carpet remains at rest.

## Why does the dust come out when you beat the carpet?

Initially the dust particles are at rest along with the carpet. Beating the carpet with the stick makes the carpet move but the dust particles remain at rest due toinertia of rest, thus the dust gets detached from the carpet.

In the language of Science, dust particles come out when the matress is beaten because of the Inertia of the dust particles. Let us imagine another scenario. What happens when you try to move a heavy closet from one end to the other end of the room.

You could be wondering “Why do the dust particles in a carpet cone in motion?”

The dust particles also cone in motion. When the carpet moves fro, the dust particles get separated due to their inertia. The inertia of the dust particles resists the change of state of motion which results in their separation.

While I was reading we ran into the inquiry “Why do people beat dust with vacuums?”.

That’s why it was being beaten – to get the dirt out of it. Most places accomplish the same thing with a vacuum cleaner. Foot traffic… Dust in the air… accumulates on it eventually you’ll have to smack it once in a while…. Lots of ideas to use Did you know that MOST dust is nothing more than skin cells?
