If you are asking for the location of the Turn Signal Flasher Relay, it is located in Junction Block 1A (under dash on drivers side). Block 1B has the fuses, Block 1A the relays. The flasher is the small relay at the end opposite the group of four (4) relays.

The speed of sound is the velocity of sound through a mechanical (elastic) medium (such as air, water, concrete, etc.). It will vary as the medium through which it travels varies. In general, the speed of sound is faster in liquids and even faster in solids. In air, the speed of sound has little to…

The 3200 bit of AMD 64 3200 means that the processor is equivalent to a Pentium 4 3.2 GHz processor. The reason that they do this is to stop you getting confused as AMD processors run a lower clock rates but they are a lot more effcient than Intels in processing instructions, so they put the equival…

To break the sound barrier you have to travel than the speed of sound. The speed of sound in air actually varies with temperature. When representing air as an ideal gas the speed of sound can be represented as c = square root(γRT) where γ = specific heat ratio = 1.4R = specific gas constant = 287T…

It depends on how you categorize them. For instance, if you categorize them by who or what makes them, you could come up with a list. There are the manmade "bodily function" sounds.

How fast is sound and light? The speed of sound is at about 344 m/s and the speed of light is at about 3 X 108 m/s. If you would like to test it out, wait for a thunderstorm. The lightning and the thunder start at the same place while the lightning is faster. That will demonstrate the speed differe…

Answer That's just the way it works out. _________________ In cases like this, the question "why" isn't the best question. It is interesting to note that the speed you mention is the speed of light in a vacuum. And although light doesn't need a medium through which to travel, it can be slowed d…
