Why might a car with a large mass use more fuel than a car with a smaller mass?

1/2mv^2 where m is mass and v is velocity. The fuel used is proportional (in a simplified view) to the kinetic energy of the car. Therefore if cars are to driven at the same speed (and ignoring the individual efficiencies of different models) the car that has a larger mass uses more fuel to get t...

If a hot wheel makes a loop how fast does it need to go if it was scale size?

Regardless of the mass of the vehicle, the square of its speed (in meters per second) divided by the radius of the curve of the loop (in meters) must be greater than about 10 meters per second squared. That is to say for a car travelling at 144 km/h (89 mph), the loop would have to be a circle wi...
