Cars & Vehicles

In the US we use PSI, (Pounds Per Square Inch).

## What unit is a compression ratio measured in?

There is no "unit". It is a ratio. Just pick a unit.

## When a tire suddenly loses air pressure the vehicle will veer in what direction?

It depends. For example, if the right-front tire were to do this, the vehicle will want to veer to the right because of the increased drag on that corner. Conversely, if the BRAKE is applied after deflation occurs then the vehicle will veer to the left because the left- front tire will now have m...

## Can you put air in a completely flat tire?

You may be able to inflate the tire right away if it leaks air slowly, but if damage to the tire caused it to become completely flat, you'll want to repair the tire before inflating it, or it may become flat again very quickly.

It will probably get noisy and leak oil and freon. If you wait for it to seize it will be more costly to repair because it will fill the system with metal that must be cleaned out before a new compressor is installed.
