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 the new diameter. Sometimes this is as simple as a gear change in the transmission (external)
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...
Hydrogen cars aren't as popular as a traditional petrol car, so the cost of a hydrogen car would probably be a little more expensive just because they aren't mass produced. When it comes to refilling, the hydrogen costs about the same as gasoline, but the best thing is that the hydrogen will be p...
The speedometer reading differences should be negligible if you spec the tyres according to the manufacturer's manual because the tyre profile for a 15" wheel would have been fatter than that of 16" for the same car. The meter is calibrated to the inflated tyre mounted on the wheel and the readin...
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 ...
Yes, they usually are, but it can differ from car to car. For example, a Chevy Suburban is faster than a smart car because there are more pistons in the engine, creating more torque and speed, therefore making the car go faster. On the other hand, however, a motorcycle is faster than most cars, y...
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 a car with a large mass might use more fuel than a car with a smaller mass Assume both cars drive same speed?
Basic law: F = maIt takes more force to move an object with more mass.If the vehicles accelerate to a set speed in a short time (let's say 20 seconds) and then remain at that speed for a long journey (several hours), you might thing "they're not accelerating for most of the time, they should use ...
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...
Driver-less cars? All cars come without a driver now. Drivers are not even available as an option. However, you can rent a car with a driver from various businesses.
More friction, you need friction in order to get out. Place something in front or behind the tire in order to get out, even a cloth towel will help.
Will a car get repo'd if you are less than 60 days behind and offered to be caught up in less than 30 days?
Depends on whether the lender believes you will come up with the money.They can tell you they will wait the 30 days and then repo today.I would send what you can to bolster your position that you want to catch up.
Because, according Newton law F=ma. If F=ma, then A=F*L=E. (this is physics)Where F -forcem - mass of cara - acceleration of carA - acceleration workL - traceE - energyAnd so, if mass of car is large, then spent more energy, and spent more fuel.
A standard shift vehicle combined with good driving habits can get better fuel mileage than an automatic transmission vehicle.
Accurate or precise are one and the same to which the automotive speedometer would never be.
Truck tires have become more and more expensive over the last decade, with an average set of new all-terrain truck tires running around $500. Due to the economic conditions, many people who have never bought used tires before are now considering it.
The car wheel size has to be calibrated with the speedometer because the circumference of the wheel touches the ground: ergo a huge wheel like those found on heavy machinery can spin slower because with each revolution it covers... say 5-10 feet.
They may transport no more than one person under age 21 who is not a family member.With a provisional license, they may drive between midnight and 5 a.m.only when accompanied by a licensed parent or guardian unless driving to/from employment, driving to/from a school-authorized activity or for a ...
The greater of two consecutive even integers is 20 or more than twice the smaller find the integers?
All you need to do is divide the MPH by 5 and multiply by 8 which gives you 96KPH
There is a vehicle speed sensor (VSS) and 4 ABS wheel speed sensors, one at each wheel.
While turning, the inside wheels take a shorter path than the outer wheels so they must rotate at different speeds.
Velocity is the same as speed. Velocity is normally used in technical terms. Speed is a general term.The SI unit for velocity is m/s =Metres per second.People can relate better to Miles per Hour for a vehicle. It is still distance/Time.
No, obviously not! This is because two cars used double the amount of fuel, while one car only uses one amount of fuel
They should fit a little less because the metal Gould contract some.
Not really.A large commercial airliner is approximately as much "fun" as a bus. Considerably less, if you're in a middle seat. However, the upside is that you won't be on it nearly as long to get to the same destination.If you're in first class, the seats are a lot more comfortable (approximately...
When traditional cars are replaced with ones that fly will they also have up and down indicators along with the more familiar left and right signals that are found on land-based cars?
If traditional cars are ever replaced by flying cars, their traffic will probably be separated in much the same way that airplanes are currently separated in flight.The FAA mandates that any aircraft on an east-bound course (anywhere from 001 to 179 heading) must cruise at an odd-thousands plus 5...
One will notice the substantial advantage of all wheel drive vehicles in winter and icy weather conditions. The chances of skidding over a slippery surface is much greater for a regular car compared to an AWD car.
When you park alongside a curb on a level street, the front and back wheels must be parallel and within 18 inches of the curb.Park parallel to the street if there is no curb.
Because you have more velocity at a higher speed, which transfers more energy, causing a more dangerous and hard crash. Kinetic energy is 1/2 m v2 so the energy is the square of the velocity, i.e. twice the velocity, four times the energy, and so on and so forth.
License holders who are 16 years old shall not operate a motor vehicle with more than one person who is not a family member occupying the vehicle unless accompanied by a parent, guardian or legal custodian.
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.
when your going fast you hit harder which causes more damage, but when your going slow you hit slower than you hit fast which cause less damage.
Because at higher speeds you have more velocity than at lower speeds transferring more energy to make a bigger crashing causing more damage.
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.
Yes, if you have your driver's license then you can legally drive more than one person in the car with you.
It depends on how old your tires are and how warn they are. The front tires will wear out first, so if they replace your tires regularly then you can get away with only replacing the front two. If you rotate your tires when you change your oil or don't replace your tires often enough then you wil...
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.
Should consumers replace their old cars with more fuel efficient vechile that are more cost effective?
Consumers will do that anyway as stricter pollution regulations price the older models out of the market.
I would say your headers but theres lots of things to do to make it weight less.
It is better to have less friction because it will be easier to get out.

Why are they more Double Decker buses in the morning when their are few people and lots of empty seats and single buses in the afternoon when they are more people with less seats on the bus?
because in the mornings they don't want anyone standing anywhere near the driver and in the afternoon they want people to get off faster so they can end their day faster.
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...
When turning left across two lanes of traffic and you have to wait in the middle can more than one car be in the middle?
No, but technically you can't wait in the middle at all for safety reasons. You would have to wait at the lane you are coming from behind the line when traffic is too heavy to cross and turn until it is clear; furthermore, if you were to wait in the middle and the light turns red, it would be con...
At a four-way stop if two vehicles reach the intersection simultaneously, the vehicle on the left must yield the right-of-way to the vehicle on the right.
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?

According to the US National Bureau of Transit Statistics (refer to the link, below), as of 2006 there were approximately 250.1 million "registered vehicles" (i.e., passenger cars, trucks, and buses used for private or commercial purposes, excluding public transit vehicles) in the USA, while the ...
Would it be possible to attain an average speed of 70kmh and never exceed a reading of 70kmh on the speedometer?
Only if you are able to set the cruise control to 70kmh and you aren't counting acceleration and deceleration times into your calculation. Not to mention you can't get "boxed in" in traffic. Its possible but hardly practical unless you live in a desolate area.
Older cars are heavier than new cars and often survive wrecks because of their bulk. However newer cars have more safety technology to protect them.
Why are written top speeds of sports cars based on average speeds over a couple of miles when the actual top speed it gets to is faster?
Timed speed over several miles and in different directions eliminates false effects of wind, road conditions, etc, that might affect actual speed. Makes the results more even.
assuming we are talking about a rear wheel drive vehicle, the smaller wheels weigh less and provide the least resistance.
A viper definitely, especially since it was cancelled in production, so its not like people can just get a new one.
On 1985 corvette digital read out is 11.5 with red bar. took voltage reading with motor running got nothing on connector or the two terminals on top the other reading was about 12v at the big one?
Sounds like your only getting battery voltage, the alternator is bad or bad wiring. Should get 13.5-14v when running, measured at the battery terminals
It will go faster, just like a boy scout pine wood derby car.
Finland has the most registered vehicles per person, with just over one vehicle for every resident, according to data from the World Health Organisation's Global Status Report on Road Safety 2015.
What damage or repairs can be expected if a car is driven 10000 km with 09 liters more oil than allowed?
Is that 9 liters or .9 liters? If it's .9 liters, then I would expect no damage. That is not very much. If it's 9 liters, then you might have some engine damage. I doubt that it was 9 liters though, because I don't think you would go 10,000 km without seeing some kind of problem before that, like...
Apparently it's 18 inches in most places.
Is the following sentence true or false if the weight of a submerged object is less than the buoyant force the object will sink?
If the weight of an object in a fluid is greater than the buoyant force, the net force will be downward and the object will sink.If the weight of an object is less than the buoyant force, the object will float.
A roller-coaster would go faster with more people in it because with moer people the better the ride alsothe people that are ridding will give the roller-coaster potential energy. A roller-coaster would go slower with an empty car will give the roller-coaster kinetic energy than with peolpe in it.
An F1 car participates in a 15-lap race At the end of the race the two wheels on one if its side cover 1 mile less than the two wheels on the other side How is this possible?
Although F1 cars turn both left and right during the race, there will generally be more turns in one direction than the other since the course must loop around to meet the location of the start. This means that a lap, although not a true oval or circle, can be looked at as a mutated version of th...
If something happens to one of the cars,you always have another one to use or to get around with.
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...
Check engine light is still on after replacing the ox sensor which is what the code read when checked should you replace the rear one or the cat con?
If a person has performed the steps to reset the computer after the O2 Sensor is fixed and the light is still on, then recheck the computer code for a new problem. If the warning light has not been reset, unhook the battery for about 10 minutes and then hook it back up. The light should be off wh...
Hit a curb- steering wheel off center at first- but more importantly the wheel doesnt lock when i turn it full one direction or another- it pops and turns some more- ideas as to why?
The Steering locks might be damaged in the rack and pinion or theteeth them selves in the rack and pinion could be strippedAlso the problem might be in the steering linkage going to the rack and pinion.
Why would a brand new battery need to be charged or jumped every day The car's power keeps losing its charge every day since about one week or so after replacing the battery with a brand new one.?
check to see if the alternator is working properly or maybe an alternator wire came loose with the new battery installation.
You can do it but not when unnecessary
Will you select a smaller or bigger gear at the rear wheel of a bicycle if you want to go up hill and why?
You select a bigger rear cog. Whenever you see someone going up a hill on a bike they always seem to be pedaling faster than normal. With the cog on the back being bigger than the front the front cog spins faster than the rear. Im not sure how to explain why it makes it easier but a understanding...
All things being equal which will move more easily a newly polished car or a car that's never been polished?
The newly polished one as the air will flow across the body with little resistance.
You have a 60 series tire as the original size tire. I would not recommend you go to any 70 series tire for sure. You could go to a 65 series but you will need to install a 215/65-17 in order the keep the overall diameter as close as possible to the OEM tire. There is only .35% difference in over...
Yes - as the body is heavier and they burn more fuel.
In this state you can be charged more that the original estimate to get a car fixed. The repair contracts have a Fifty dollar limit over the estimate. If the mechanic finds something else broken, he can fix it as long as it does not cost more than fifty dollars.
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!(:
Replacement car battery information may be obtained from the owner's manual of the vehicle or the manufacturer's dealerships. In addition auto parts stores such as AutoZone and NAPA will have listing of vehicles and the types of batteries that will work/fit.
Due to centrifugal force, when turning left, the left side of the car will life. The same goes for right handed turns. If turning right, the right side of your car will have less weight on it. The weight will always be on the outside of the curve. Hope this helps :)
Do you know when my car will be ready.
It could be wheel balance or worn out steering joints. Have it checked by a trusted garage soon!
When you have a conventional, two wheel drive, car it has a differential between the wheels so that it can go around corners easily - otherwise when the wheels have to travel different distances (the outer one travels further than the inner one) they would have to break traction with the road.Thi...
In North Carolina what are the requirements to operate a dump truck with a gvwr of less than 26000 lbs and equipped with air over hydraulic brakes?
This is a tricky one. The GVWR doesn't call for anything but a Class C driver's license--the cutoff for that is 26,001 pounds--but this truck has air brakes and you're driving it as part of your job--maybe your whole job. If I was driving this truck I'd want a Class B CDL and I'd take the air bra...
Try putting in neutral at the time and see if it makes a difference. I had a similar problem w/1991 Lincoln and found that it was a recall from Ford. When brakes got warm they would apply, due to defective master cylinder
Quite possibly a loose motor mount bolt.
While driving my car will occasionally jerk momentarily when the revs are between 0 and about 2200 rpm any higher than that and it wont do it at all also does it far less when air con is on?
either the valves in one of your cylinders are bad or you have a bad head gasket
Hydrogen-powered cars create less pollution than gasoline-powered cars when driven. What might be a challenge to using hydrogen as a fuel?
Challenges to hydrogen as fuel include no distribution network, ie gas stations, and fear that the car co u l d explode like the Hindenburg.
What is wrong on a 1995 Lincoln Town car with the digital dash the speedometer and all associated functions read at 0?
First try the vehicle speed sensor, it's mounted at the transmission's tail end. Very easy to remove. If you replace it your spedo can be off by 10% so you have to calibrate the system (by a dealer).
When 2 cars sit in the sun all day the 1 with theblack roof gets hotter than the one with the white shiny roof Why?
Because black absorbs heat and shiny white reflects it away. This is why many transport aircraft used in hot climates have the cockpit roof painted shiny white.
The chemical signature for air is H20, or 2 parts Hydrogen and 1 part Oxygen. As each of these elements has mass, even in a gaseous state, the short answer is that air weighs 0.070 lbs oer cubic foot. So at one atmosphere of 14.7 PSI (that is the pressure of the air around us) when the tire is fl...
No. That's commonly known as a "big 3" upgrade, where you replace the wire from the alternator the battery positive, battery negative to ground, and engine block to ground. This will have to be done if you're adding any aftermarket devices with a high amperage draw (such as off-road lights or sou...
Unless you are towing something or encountering steep hills (do you live in San Fran?), you should always be in overdrive. The lock-up into overdrive won't occur unless you are going fast enough, anyway, so there is no reason not to keep the gear selector in OD.
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.
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.
