Bad speed sensors can cause the car to hesitate when accelerating at speeds below 20 mph. The blockage of the air filters can also cause the car to hesitate when accelerating at speeds below 20 mph.

How can you accelerate when your speed does not?

By changing direction. Acceleration is a change in velocity. Since velocity takes direction into account, while speed does not, an object can having a changing velocity even while its speed remains the same. And while that object is changing its velocity by changing its direction, it is accelerating, regardless of its speed remaining constant. For example, if a car is driving north at constant speed of 20mph, its speed is 20mph, while its velocity is 20mph towards the north. At this point, the car is not accelerating. Now if the car turns a corner to head east while maintaining its speed of 20mph, its velocity is changing from 20mph northward to 20mph north-eastward and finally to 20mph eastward. As it is turning, it is accelerating. However, as soon as it stops turning, the car is no longer accelerating.

What is the speed of any residential area?

Depending on the type of residential area, speeds can vary -- either 15mph, 20mph, 25mph, to 35mph. For example, in a small town, a side street is posted at 20mph. Four blocks away is a county maintained road with a solid double line posted as 35mph. Get to know how road markings affect speed limits.

Can speed be negative?

Yes in a form. It can not be literaly -20mph but in deceleration it is. when you slow down a car to a stop that is negative volocity. and volacity is speed+direction. ex: 30mph east. so if your travaling 20mph west then slow to a stop it changes to -20mph west. (until you start going east) but because volacity is a messure of speed then yes it is possible. but not like when approching the speed of light when time slows down, if you go slower than it by so much then it speeds up. (because the speed cant be that form and has to be in directiog)

Why does your 2001 Kia Sportage vibrate between 20mph and 60mph especially when accelerating?

When my 1998 Kia did this, it was the wheel bearings, inner and outer. Your local car repair shop should be able to check it out for you by putting it on a lift - usually at no cost to you. I am very curious about that also, i have a 2000 or 2001 kia sportage, but it vibrates starting at 60 mph, usually on the interstate.

How fast can tornado wind speeds get?

The fastest wind speed associated with a large tornado recorded on 3 May 1999 near Bridge Creek, Oklahoma, USA, was 486 +/_32km/h (301 +/-20mph). It is suspected that winds can be faster, though, as only a handful of tornadoes have actual had their winds measured.
