What could cause a loud rattling like a can of marbles dragging on the ground when you accelerate?

Sounds like the heat shield on the catalytic convertor or the muffler has broken free on one of the mounts and is rattling from the increase in R.P.M.'s.

Dont rule out Knocking. try some higher octane fuel or some octane boost.

A falling snowflake or raindrop does not accelerate as it approaches the ground because their mass doesn't change. The form is not affected throughout the fall so it is already approaching the ground at terminal velocity. Hope this helps.

Poorly, very poorly. Friction is what slows the bike down.

In sliding friction, an object is dragged over the ground, and the object is therefore moving in relation to the ground. The surface area of the underside of the object is in constant contact and motion with respect to the ground, and it is this underside surface dragging along the ground that creates the friction. In a wheeled arrangement, the surface area of the wheel is stationary with respect to the ground - it does not drag along the ground, except in cases of skidding. As the wheel rotates, the adjacent surface area of the wheel comes into momentary stationary contact with the ground as the former surface area lifts up off the ground. Therefore, there is no dragging, and no energy lost due to friction between the wheel and the ground. In an automobile wheel, there is momentary deformation of the tire, which results in minor internal friction, but that friction is insignificant compared to the friction caused by dragging an object over the ground.

If you are not pressing the gas your car will always not want to accelerate at any speed. This is between of wind resistance and friction on the ground.

As its name suggests, it floats (or levitates) above the ground. Additionally, it has no traditional "rails" to make clacking sounds with.

Gravity will make any flying object accelerate toward the ground. A force behind a projectile makes it accelerate until the force is removed. When I throw a rock it accelerates until it leaves my hand. A bullet accelerates when the explosion behind it expands the gas.

Its weight causes it to accelerate. That is in simple terms. When an object falls to the ground, it still has mass, it still has weight, and it has constant forces acting upon it, such as gravity.

User Avatar

As you leap upward from the ground, the force exerted on the ground in the moment of leaping is greater than your weight. This allows you to accelerate upwards. Gravity, of course, will bring you back down, causing another momentary force on the ground in excess of your weight as you decelerate.

You can only make a hole in the ground if you're on Ice Island, and that is if it is extremely hot there. You make it extremely hot by using 2 fingers and dragging the sun to the left and right at the same time.

An object falling from a tall building would accelerate at a rate of 9.807 m/s2 until it reached terminal velocity, at which point it would not accelerate until it impacted the ground. Its velocity would increase as it fell until reaching terminal velocity, and then 0 when it hit the ground.

The ball will stay right were it is in relation to the ground, but will move toward the back of the wagon.

Because I know more than you and I am right and you are wrong so the answer is what I said it was because of gravity you idiot!!!!!!!!!

User Avatar

Newton's second law of motion states that force is equal to mass times acceleration, or F = ma. So, because the force of gravity is pulling the object down towards the ground during free fall, the object will accelerate. In fact, it will accelerate at a rate of 9.8 m/s2.
