If you are travelling at the speed of light and turn your headlights on what will happen?

Your headlights will illuminate the roadway in front of you (or the spaceway or whatever), just as if you were driving on a road and turned on your headlights under those circumstances. The light will leave the headlights at the speed of light (for the medium through which it is taveling) regardless of how fast you are going. The speed of light is a constant, no matter what your frame of reference. That is what Einstein said. The speed of light, c, is always the same (for the medium through which it is traveling), regardless of who measures it and whether or not that person is in motion relative to another observer. Both observers will get the same result measuring c. Time changes in different frames of reference, different inertial frames. That's why the speed is the same.

If a space shuttle could move at the speed of light and had headlights what would happen if you turned them on?

1) The light could simply appear as if it was not on since it would not be going fast enough to reach the road ahead or you. 2) we can not go the speed of light so this question is irrelevent. or 3) The light would travel double light speed due to the car pushing it at light speed and its regular speed combining. You chose which one seems most appropriate.

How do you turn on the headlights in a S70 Volvo?

The light switch is located at the left-most position on the dash. Turning the knob clockwise will light the parking lights on the first detent and the headlights when turned all the way. By leaving the switch turned all the way on when shutting off the vehicle will result in the lights remaining lit for 30 - 45 seconds. In this case they will re-light when the car is re-started.

Please 1999 jeep grand Cherokee why does your right brake light turn off when headlights are on?

This will happen if the ground terminal for the brakelight bulb is connected to the power side by accident. If you have a 3 wire socket or light assembly with GROUND, TAIL, and BRAKE wires two of them are wired incorrectly. When the headlights are off the brake light is finding ground thru the filaments of the headlights. Since the headlights have much heavier filaments, they provide a good ground for weaker brake light. When power is on the headlights the brake light will have power on both sides, so no current flows and it goes out.

Check your relay. Take a test light to see if you have power going to the 86 pole when the headlight switch is turned off. If you do, your switch is stuck in the on position. If you don't, your relay is stuck closed.

What would happen if you turned on your headlights while traveling at the speed of light?

1) So far, we have not been able to figure out a way to get objects with mass to travel at the speed of light. The energy required to do so would be infinitely large, and since there's no such thing as an infinite supply of energy, it's impossible. 2) That being said, if you were to travel at very close to the speed of light, you would see the light from your headlights as you would normally see light from your headlights. Light travels at the same speed regardless of your frame of reference (in other words, regardless of how fast you're moving compared to other objects). The road, trees, street signs, etc, on the other hand, would all be strangely warped.
