How does gravity affect acceleration?

Well, gravity is the pull of the earth. So, if a car accelerates, more friction is produced.

How can a car with a large mass have the same acceleration as a car with a small mass?

by exerting more force on the car with the large mass than with the car with the small mass.

Why is the force of gravity between you and earth greater than the force of gravity between you and a car?

Earth has much more mass than a car does. Therefore Earth has much stronger gravity.

Two identical cars have forces applied to them Car A has a 1000 N force applied Car B has a 500 N force applied Which car will have more acceleration?

well if both the car are identical in mass the acceleration is directly proportional to force and inversely proportional to mass since mass is same hence car having force of 1000 N will have more acceleration than 500 N one.

What is faster at acceleration a indycar or a formula one car?

A Formula One race car has more horse power, torque, and weighs about 300lbs less than an Indycar (which is build more to stand huge impacts rather than raw speed). A Formula One car costs millions of dollars where as an Indycar cost less than half million. so its a safe bet a Formula One car would be faster at acceleration.

How does friction decrease the acceleration of a car?

friction decreases the acceleration of a car by creating a greater force which pushes against the acceleration force. the friction is a force, but more of it means that whatever is pushing against it ( acceleration in this case) is made smaller.

Explain why a car with a large mass might use more fuel than a car with a smaller mass?

Because, according Newton law F=ma. If F=ma, then A=F*L=E. (this is physics) Where F -force m - mass of car a - acceleration of car A - acceleration work L - trace E - energy And so, if mass of car is large, then spent more energy, and spent more fuel.

True or false car has negative acceleration it is slowing down?

false A car can have a negative acceleration and be speeding up. A negative acceleration determines the direction of the acceleration A car with forward acceleration will speed up in the forward direction A car moving forward with a negative acceleration will slow down A car not moving with a negative acceleration will speed up in the backward direction A car moving backward with a negative acceleration will speed up in the backward direction

Why is the force of gravity between you and earth is greater than the force of gravity between you and a car?

The main reason is that Earth has more mass than several billion cars have.

Would a toy car have more potential energy on the moon than does on the earth?

On Earth, gravity slows down the car, but the moon has very little gravity. Thus, the potential energy of the car would be limitless.

If you use the same force on a less massive object what happens to the acceleration?

Force equals mass times acceleration, so an alternative formula is acceleration equals force divided by mass. Therefore if the mass is decreased, the acceleration goes up. Thus a 100 HP engine on a motor cycle produces more acceleration than the same engine on a car.

What causes car acceleration problems?

Car acceleration problems is a symptom of engine hesitation.

Why does acceleration vary from car to car?

It varies with the amount of horsepower, and torque the engine is putting out. Also the weight of the car is a big factor. More horsepower and torque and less weight equals more acceleration and a faster 0-60 time. All at the expense of mileage.

Car slow acceleration?

It is good of a car has a slow acceleration rate. This means that the car will probably be great on gas.

What takes more acceleration a bus or car?

Probably a bus because it has a greater mass. But its kinetic energy will be greater once acceleration is achieved.

If a car travels along east and its velocity decreases what direction is the acceleration of the car?

It has negative acceleration east or positive acceleration west. West

If two car are moving in the same direction and the velocity of car A exceeds the velocity of car B does it mean that car A's acceleration is greater than car B?

Not at all. In fact, if they're both moving at constant speed, then neither one has anyacceleration.What you describe just means that the speed of one is greater than the speed of the other right now. If either one undergoes any acceleration, then either its speed or direction will change.

Does a car have more gravity than earth?

No. The gravity of an object is directly proportional to its mass, meaning if you double the mass you double the gravity. Earth has more mass than a car does by an unimaginably large margin. Common sense also says no. Objects very readily fall toward Earth. They do not readily fall toward cars.

Is acceleration of a car is scalar quantity?

No, acceleration is a vector quantity.

What is the acceleration of a 1000 kg car if the net force on the car is 7890 N?

Force = Mass x Acceleration 7890 = 1000 x Acceleration 7.89 m/s^2 = Acceleration

What describes motion of a car?

Acceleration describes the motion of a car. Acceleration is defined as an increase in the rate or speed of something.

Which car has most acceleration and horsepower?

Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Super Sport is the car that has the most acceleration and horsepower.

A sentence with acceleration?

The acceleration in my dads car is starting to slow down.
