Do bigger wheels roll faster articles?
Per given number of rotations/time, the larger the distance covered per rotation/time the higher the speed. If you pit them against each other on a ramp in a vacuum, then they'd roll at the same speed, different rotations/time 's In reality you have to factor in wind-resistance is greater than that on the smaller wheel.

Do bigger wheels roll faster than smaller wheels?
Okay, first we need to clarify the difference between "tire" size and "wheel" size. Tires come in various sizes so depending on the rim size you select you can end up with the same exact wheel height (diameter) by combining a large rim with a low profile tire as you would with a smaller rim and a tire that has a wider sidewall to it, in which case they'd be no difference in speed since the wheel's diameter wouldn't change. Thus when we're talking about "bigger wheels" what we're really talking about is the wheel's overall diameter, or width size (think of it as the difference between a dime and a nickel). That said, if you switch to bigger wheels your car will go faster than what your speedometer reads because the distance covered by spinning the rotors one revolution (say from 12 o'clock to 12 o'clock) is greater the bigger the wheel is, which means you cover more distance per rotor revolution (for example, if your speedometer reads 55 mph you actually might be going 65 mph or faster depending on how much bigger the new wheels are). For this same reason, taller wheels actually save gas, not waste more gas. Think of it this way: If you compare two identical cars going down the highway at 65 miles per hour - one with smaller wheels, and the other with bigger wheels - the one with the bigger wheels will require less depression of the gas pedal to get to 65 mph than the one with the smaller wheels (since the speedometer on the car with the bigger wheels will actually be reading slower than 65 mph). And we all know the deeper you press your gas pedal the more gas you send into the engine, and the faster you burn up gas. So bigger wheels use less power than smaller wheels at any given speed when you compare two equivalent vehicles side by side.

Where do you roll the snowball to make your snowman in animal crossing?
All you have to do is keep pushing it (it will roll away from you) until you can roll it (it won't roll away from you and you can control where it goes) then make one snowball larger than the other and push the smaller one on top. Handy hint: Roll the snowballs over dirt and stone to make them smaller, roll them over snow to make them larger
How can you prove that rolling friction is less than sliding friction?

How can you make snowballs in Animal Crossing Wild World?
Snowballs - Only appear in winter! You can find them on the ground around the place. To make them bigger you simply roll them around in the snow and they get bigger. To roll them you push against them. ps. They start off very easy to roll because they are light but they do get heavier and easier to control as they get bigger. xx
