I bet it is nothing mechanical. Try shifting down a gear and see if it stops. Sounds like detenation with the fuel. I had a Toyota that done the same, I thought it was suspension, but no...

It is definitely fuel detonation!! Just about all rangers do this, You could try going up to 89 octane,but with prices these days!!! Try that lucas fuel injector cleaner (in the skinny bottle) that should help. A octane booster will probably help too. try a K and N air filter cold air intake its expensive but it does make a power difference and helps with the pinging problem. Ford says it doesn't hurt the motor!!!

Picture a ball traveling at a constant speed around the inside of a circular structureis the ball accelerating?

If it's going at a constant speed then it is not accelerating. To accelerate would mean to have a rate of change for speed in some direction. If the ball is going outward while traveling at a constant speed due to centrifugal force then it is accelerating. If it's going inwards due to some ground angle then it is also accelerating. From Newton's laws we know that to have a circular motion, an object must be subject to a force directed to the centre of the structure and is accelerating in that direction. This centrifugal force, exerted by the structure to the ball, is opposite in direction and magnitude to the 'fictitious' centrifugal force.

An ice skater glides around a rink at a constant speed of 2m s is the skater accelerating?

Acceleration is change in velocity. These are vectors that have magnitude and direction. Changing either magnitude (speed) or direction will have the skater be accelerating. SO, if the skater is going at a constant speed of 2m/s in a straight line, he is not accelerating. If he is at a constant speed of 2m/s traveling in a circle (you gave the word "around"), he is accelerating. Going around in circles means there is a force constantly changing your direction. Obviously that force is coming from the skaters legs.
