In Science
The shock absorbers on a car use the viscous properties of oil to absorb energy when the tire hits a bump.
Oil is forced to flow through small holes inside the shock absorber as the wheel moves up, and again as it moves down to its normal position. Without shock absorbers, the car would continue bouncing up and down.
More energy is absorbed if the holes are smaller or the oil is more viscous.
Also, more energy is absorbed if the wheel moves up fast after hitting a sharp bump than if it moves up slower on a gentle bump, so your suspension can be comfortable over small bumps but still control large bumps well.

Do narcissists say it is 'the real me' when describing themselves in situations they like?

Once formed and functioning, the False Self stifles the growth of the True Self and paralyses it. Henceforth, the True Self is virtually non-existent and plays no role (active or passive) in the conscious life of the narcissist. I do not believe in the ability to "resuscitate" it through therapy. It (MORE)

Real life Situations of Catalysts?

What would be a better gun for a real life situation a pistol or a rifle?

That would depend on the real life situation. hunting for deer would definitely call for a rifle whereas defending your home from an intruder is probably a good time to have a pistol handy, I have never found it necessary to keep anything deadlier than a baseball bat by the door. 99% of the pe (MORE)

How do exponents apply to real life situations?

Exponents are based on real life situations. For example, scientist use exponents to measure size of an earthquake! 2 to the 5th power is 2x2x2x2x2. Another way they are used is when putting in carpeting. You will order 12x12 square inches of carpeting, or 12 Squared. Every computer programmer (MORE)

What is a viscous substance?

viscosity is the thickness of the fluid..........eg water is thin therefore has less viscosity and honey is thick it has higher viscosity.

How does algebra relate to real life situations?

One example: You purchase a new home and the backyard is not landscaped. So you want to put in a lawn in a section of the backyard. But you have just purchased a new home, so money is tight, thus you decide to do the job yourself. You know you can afford $1500 for sod, and sod cost $2 a square (MORE)

Real life situation modeled by a function?

Suppose x people are eating at a (really cheap) buffet which costs $2 a person. Then the cost y is y = 2x. With a $3 off coupon it becomes y = 2x-3 (however I'm sure that most restaurants would want a sufficient number of people to make profit). Many other real-life applications are modeled using (MORE)

Where is surds applied in real life situations?

Roots are needed to set up pallet specifications for shipments of goods, such as boxes of cereal or toilet paper.

But then, they tell a lie. like in THE CRUCIBLE, John Proctor admits he is a lecher, but Elizabeth Proctor never lies... however her knowledge of John admitting is n (MORE)

What real-life situations are prime numbers used?

Large prime numbers are used in encryption. The larger the primes, the better the encryption. Typically each of two people will provide a prime; you need to know both prime numbers to decrypt.

How would you relate composite numbers to real life situations?

Composite numbers are every number that isn't prime sorealistically any number that isn't prime in a problem you have inlife is composite.

How viscous is a heated substance?

It becomes less viscous. Particles move faster when they heat up, which puts more space between them and gives the substance more flow. Because viscosity means "to resist flow".

How can you apply math in real life situations?

Simple maths is important in DIY/constructione.g. triangles to support a roof structure. Being able to calculatelengths angles and areas is very useful. Maths is used incartography, chemistry, economics, government (e.g. predictingpopulation growth and the spread of disease), really useful inbusines (MORE)

How you apply calculus in real life situation?

One very practical application of calculus is to maximize or minimize a function - find when a function has the highest value. Whether you actually use this or not depends on what your "real life" is; an engineer is more likely to need this than, say, a school teacher or a carpenter. Here are some e (MORE)

How can vectors be applied to real life situation?

You use it when throwing an object at a target. Over any but a trivially short distance, gravity will pull the object downwards. So you aim higher than the target.
