Collisions tend to happen when one driver is going faster or slower than other cars on the road?
true lol :)drivers ed
A combination of speed and volume of traffic plus tight on and off ramps on many expressways
If you replace a car's wheels with smaller ones will the speedometer reading be faster or slower than the car is actually going?
Faster as there is smaller wheel circumference per rotation.If your wheel is 1m around, your speedo will have been configured to know that you will travel 1m per rotation but if its only 90cm the car will still think you have done 1m per rotation so therefore you are actually travelling slower th...
better fuel economy, and its better for your engine trans etc
Faster. You see, adding more mass to the object pulls it down faster than when it had a lesser amount. Now that you've added more mass to your car, the gravitational pull will allow it to zoom on down the ramp. Forget about driving that thing UP the ramp!(:
The far right lane. On multiple lane highways, the lanes are counted from the left to right -- the fast lane is #1. So if you are on a 4-lane drive in #4. This applies to The US and right-side drive road, left side driver cars
They generally are designed to have a lower mass than other cars as well as having more powerful engines. They also have suspension systems that are optimized to allow faster and harder cornering.Add these factors together with an owner who likes the concept of speed, and there are four reasons w...
The damp road surface, plus the momentum of the car's weight going round a bend, could cause a loss of friction, resulting in a slide.
On two-lane roads, the left lane should generally be used only when you're passing a slower car driving in front of you; when the road is crowded and both lanes are in use, don't use the left lane if you're driving more slowly than traffic.
The wheel that turns another is called a drive wheel. The wheel that is being turned by another wheel is the driven wheel. The wheels could be v-belt or flat belt driven in which case the wheels would be pulleys. They could also be driven by chain in which case the wheels would be sprockets. The ...
Depends upon which cars are being compared. In many US municipalities, the Ford Crown Victoria is still used, and is not exactly a fast car (electronically limited to 120mph, and not very quick to get to 60mph). However, you can't outrun a police officer's radio.Note:Does depend on the cars being...
The bumpier the road, the more resistance the car has to move forward.
It will go faster, just like a boy scout pine wood derby car.
Because the tires can pick up grip and the suspension is not required as much, it would be the same as a person with running shoes/trainers running on a athletics track, they can make more speed as the surface is flat.
It cuts down on the wind resistance of the car behind it, which makes that car push the other car faster than the one by itself. Because the one by itself isn't getting a push behind and its not pushed by another car which slows it down!
What happened when your car turned off while going 70 MPH for less than one second then came back on?
The most logical thing I can think of is *CHECK the connections on both of your battery terminal connectors, make sure they are tightly secured to the terminals? *If say for example the negative battery terminal came out of contact even for a second all of your electronics would appear to go craz...
More weight behind the train therefore longer stopping time.
Less resistance/friction on concrete.
On a car do the left wheels go slower than the right wheels when turning left or vice-versa because they would have to cover less distance in the same time since they are on the inside of the turn?
Left wheels slower on a left turn. Right slower on a right turn.
excessive and lingering anger over how other drivers behave on the road is often termed?
When One valve tip on a cylinder head is much higher than the others. the most likely cause of this?
When an engine severely overheats a valve or valves can "tulip". This condition can cause the valve to seat lower in the valve seat causing the valve to appear higher than normal. Time for the head to be rebuilt.
A sonic boom occurs by an object traveling through the air faster than the speed of sound.
They make the cars go faster then the speed limit so they have enough power to tow things, if need be, and to make up hills and other road conditions. If they only went 75 miles an hour there would be a major limit on the things you could do with them.It's the only way car manufacturers have foun...
I doubt it, engines today are more technical and more efficent than the ones from long ago.
sometimes they just go while they are driving
It depends on where you are located, for example, im From Nova Scotia Canada, and i am the main driver on all 4 of my civics.
Why would someone driving a Porche BMW Mercedes or any other fast sportcar decide to go 15 miles below the speed limit when they most certainly have the car to go faster?
The Real reason is they don't want everybody in the world thinking that they have to show off in front of some idiot in a pinto thinking that their car belongs on fast and the furious. It is a personal preference showing off does not happen in 5 o'clock traffic catch one at night you might see it...
Of course, there are other possible reasons that your car won't start.
Is a car that can go from 0 to 100 kmph in 7 seconds faster than one that goes from 0 to 60 mph in 3.5 seconds?
That really is no indication of the overall top speed, but the car which accelerates from 0-60 MPH gets to that speed faster.. 100 km/h is approximately 62 miles per hour.
The golf door mechanism is set to unlock the drivers door only. This is a safety measure, it allows the driver to get into the car and control who gets into the passenger side of the car.
A car is driving on a flat road When the driver hits the brakes the car slows down and stops What would happen if there were no friction?
If you're asking in the theoretical sense as in there were no friction at all in the universe then the car would never stop. Then again if that were the case then the car would have a hard time to move in the first place.
Yes there are Hybrids and 100% electric vehicles such as the Tesla, Ford Focus Electric, Nissan Leaf, and others.
The train is heavier than the car is and the train has more things in the back. The train is heavier than the car is and the train has more things in the back.
because the train have a power heavy than car fast thats it
Two cars plus traveled towards each other from a point of 500kmh apart the two cars meet in 4 hours what is the average speed of each car if one travels 15kmh faster than the other?
one car is traveling at 55 kilometers per hour the other is at 70 let x = speed of first car => speed of second car = x+15 knowing that the total milage covered in 4 hours was 500 Km x+(x+15) = 500/4 2x + 15 = 125 2x = 110 x = 55 => car one is 55 Kph => car two is 70 Kph to check wo...
If two cars coming from opposite directions enter an intersection with no traffic signs or signals one intends to turn left the other is going straight ahead the driver of the turning car should?
The driver of the turning car should YEILD as the car driving straight has the right of way. In Canada anyway. In the UK also
One headlight is brighter than the other but even when you switch out the headlight that is dim with the one that was bright the one that was dim is now brighter in the other headlight?
It sounds to me that as you move the suspect bulb to another socket the light intensity goes with it. Remove the bulbs and look closely to determine whether they are the same manufacturer, type, and wattage. sounds like there is a bad ground on the headlight assembly of the one that makes the lig...
In the state of New Jersey when your car is parked on the side of the road is it illegal to get in on the driver's side?
Technically in most states one should not open the drivers side door because it could interfere with traffic and cause accidents.If there are no cars coing and you do not interfere with traffic then it should be no problem.I'd love to see more people comment on this, I've never heard anyone ask t...
It doesn't, if your car is missing a tire, your car slows down and the wayward tire appears to go faster.
It cant. They are connected. If the front car moved faster than the back car it would pull away from the back car.
Only if you paid him/her to hold the car for a designated amount of time did he/she breach an "option contract". Other than that, it was only an invitation to negotiate and he/she had the legal right to sell to someone else, because you did not have a contract for the sale of said car.
Your car will have more traction in the snow, making it easier to drive.However, you should only put the tires exactly specified by the manufacturer on your car.
When driving through a one way alley and the speed limit is not posted you must drive no faster than?
Usually it's 10 or 15 and in some places it's as high as 20, but if you're not sure, go no more than 5 and you won't have a problem.
You will eventually get stopped by PD and get a ticket. Some places require also for you to have a valid license like bars. Even jobs!!If you dont for whatever reason want to renew your license, i suggest getting an additional ID that is valid. You always need some kind of valid ID for so many th...
Pressing on the steering wheel pad will close the contacts on the switch that activates the horn relay which in turn activates the horn.
Their racing history/name, they are like Porsche, way over priced for what you get.
the tyres may slip and the car will go faster
The reason manufacturers don't fit speed limiters to cars is simple.Car buyers want to drive fast and would not buy a car that is speed limited.To put it simply, cars are made to go significantly faster than the highest national speed limit because it is the will of the people.
The first gear is larger than the others. As the gear has larger radius the speed of rotation is low. As the gears keep on increasing their size decreases resulting in increase in speed of the vehicle
Is a 40 offset of a car rim bigger or smaller than a 38 off set which will sit in more than the other 40 or 38?
Depends if it is a negative or positive offset.Rear spacing (or backspacing) is the distance between the wheel's inboard edge and its mounting pad. It can be measured by using a ruler and a straightedge set across the backside rim of the wheel.If you have a "positive" offset, the mounting pad is ...
If you're the type that doesn't like groups or a schedule to stick too, renting a car is your best option in Hawaii. The freedom to come and go as you please, where you want for as long as you want is more than worth the price. You also have the option to discover the non-touristy locales.
The Bugatii Veyron is the fastest production car. (Well the Veyron SS is faster but that's just the newer model)The current land speed record is held by the ThrustSSC which uses twin turbofan engines and has reached a speed of over 1,200 km/h (~750 mph I think)
Your left ear is more emotional than your right ear If you have hearing loss, one ear probably has more than the other — but even more than that, since birth, your ears have been partial to different sounds.Scientists have discovered that the left and right ears process sound differently.
because it's slippery... wet surfaces are slippery while dry is notthis is because there is less friction and it cant grip to the road as wellthere is less traction when the roads are wet as the water creates a thin layer between the surface of the road and the tire. this means that the tires can...
You would apply force to the accelerator to make the car go faster.
Not as long as you put the proper fluid into the proper place such as, motor oil into the engine, gasoline in the fuel tank, antifreeze in the cooling system reservoir, transmission fluid in the transmission, brake fluid in the brake system reservoir, power steering fluid in the power steering re...
gravity pulls objects down and when a car is on the ground.but when it is on a ramp it moves and goes and goes and stops because gravity pulls is down to the ground and when it is on a flat area it moves a little but its like its on the ground cause of gravity.
there is a contact to ground that takes place wich activates the horn relay wich in turn activates the horn
When a car going up hill on a one lane road comes across another car going down hill who should back up?
This isn't AS straight-forward as it sounds!Complicating matters is how much traffic is behind the first ascending or descending vehicle! It can be nightmarish to get all drivers to understand and coordinate the intended actions. Among local drivers traveling known one-lane or narrow hills, a lon...
What is causing a squeaking noise coming out of the front of your car on the passenger side it happens when you go over bumps or when the car kicks back when putting it in to gear atlow speeds 15mph?
If it is a front wheel drive car have the cv joint checked or one of the suspension components like tie rod ends or shock absorber.
Upon approaching an emergency vehicle, including a tow truck, that is stopped on a highway with its emergency lights activated, the driver of a vehicle travelling on the same side of the highway shall slow down and proceed with caution and move to a non-adjacent lane if it is safe to do so.
i had a similar problem it could be a low antifreeze level or sticky or stuck open thermostat or partially plugged rad or fan could not be working right if electric or clutch type. either way start with the simple and cheapest first if none of these check your guage.
The pedal in the car you push to go faster is the accelerator pedal.
Boosted96GSX's Response:To answer the question, the faster of what you have listed would be any MK5 or even MK6 with the 2.0 Turbo motor. The MK4 with the 1.8 Turbo is an awesome motor of its time, but if we are just talking about stock power from the factory, the 2.0T is the winner right now.
check that your gass lines arent cracked. and look into these:replace spark plugs, replace air filter. and you might want to replace your gas filters. that's whats I did and my car is running fine now.
using signal lights and positioning your vehicle in the direction you intend to go (left lane change, put vehicle toward the left side of your lane and the opposite for a right lane change).
It's all dependent on the cars power. For example, a 600bhp Lamborghini and a 600bhp modified Nissan Skyline have the same power. However, it then depends on curb weight and how the power is transferred onto the tarmac. If the Nissan has been stripped to race, it may only weigh a ton, whereas the...
Ebay can be reasonable. Or there is the American Classifieds.
Who is responsible in a 3-car crash if a crash occurs because driver 2 is avoiding an unsafe or abrubt act of driver 1 and driver 2 swerves to avoid a collision and ends up crashing into driver 3?
I was sitting still and a pick up behind me was very close but did not hit me the 3 car hit the pick up and rammed it into my car. Now my car is totalled, and no one wants tofix it.
that is such a lie the electronics just use extra energy
If two cars hit head on and each is going the same speed is the collision speed the combined speeds?
Yes, and I saw the result of that while living in Germany. Two cars hit headon going at the same speed. It was a mess. One was a VW Beetle and there was nothing left but the back seat. They had to airlift the driver out.
Why on a 98 ford escort zx2 would your car shake when you apply the brakes going highway or faster speeds?
You have warped rotors. To cure the problem, you will need to remove both front rotors and have them turned by a machine shop, or replaced if they are not turnable. Be sure and replace both front sets of pads, even if they look good. Also check the calibers to make sure they are not sticking. Sti...
What is the difference between the two police sirens the fast woo woo woo one and the slower woooooooo woooooooo and when is each one used?
The " woo woo" short siren, is used as a signal/warning (like your stopped it a no parking zone, I.E. move). The slower/continuous one is used in urgent call, The cop is in a (hurry/get out of the way), like to a shooting/high speed chase.
your brakes are sticking need servicing asap
negligable effects if ....all other factors exact. same
Will speedometer readings be more or less than actual speed when the cars wheels are replaced with smaller ones?
If the outside diameter of the new wheel (tire) is smaller then the tire will have to make more revolutions to equal what the manufacturer calibrated the spedometer to. The result would be your vehicle reading higher than actual speed. The solution it to make sure the vehicle is recalibrated to t...
1. Stay in your car. More people get injured when they get out of their car and are struck by a passing vehicle. 2. Pull the car as far out of the drive lane as possible. Pull onto the paved shoulder if available or onto the grass if it is not too steep or soft. 3. Put on your hazard flashers to ...
What other property is required of a car radiator other than ability to transfer heat energy and being light?
Resistance to flexing and vibration and corrosion and electrolysis.
you are going the wrong way because it is a 1 way road.
You might expect all cars to be the same more or less Some cars are better than others A handful of cars can be said to be the only ones worth buying?
You make a statement but you do not have a question so therefore I can provide no answer.
Why would the right rear disc brake pads wear a lot faster than the other wheels on a 2001 4 wheel drive Z71 Chevy pickup?
The caliper or parking brake linkage may be hanging. Make sure all of that is free.
The car continues in the direction it was heading when traction was lost
You have a serious front end problem. Have a mechanic inspect it asap.
The law of conservation of momentum says the center of mass of a system will always continue with the same velocity unless something outside the system acts on it with a force. That person has a kinetic energy, and the law of conservation of energy says it must go somewhere, can't just disappear ...
Well let's look at this from a logical standpoint. Did you cause the accident by running a stop sign or did the other party cause it because they were speeding? If you had not run the stop sign would the accident have happened in the first place? The answer is obvious. You caused the accident by ...
When brake pads are worn enough will they actually cause the vehicle to feel like it is towing or dragging something i.e. slower acceleration or sluggishness?
yes especially when slowing down it makes an awful noise like your towin somethin
