# What is the average acceleration of a Formula 1 race car?

An F1 car can reach up to 350kph during a race.

0-60 in 2-2.5 seconds.

### 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.

### What is the fastest race car in the world?

Formula 1. um ... to whoever wrote this answer formula 1 is a car race. the quetion is about a race car! sheesh! It depends on which style of racing you would be reffering to. Top-fuel drag cars, for example, have a much higher top speed and acceleration than F1, but lack the ability to steer at those speeds. Also, I believe Indy cars (very similar to F1) also have a higher top speed than…

### Can a car move around a circular racetrack so that the car has a tangential acceleration but no centripetal acceleration?

No, If a car moves around a circular race track with any constant speed, the acceleration is directed towards the centre. So it has a centripetal acceleration. The tangential acceleration would be irrelevant unless the car has an instantaneous tangential velocity of zero. Then the centripetal acceleration is zero. However, this would only exist for that small instant in time.

### Who would win in a drag race a ferrari or a drag car?

it would obviously be a drag car as it has a higher rate of acceleration and top speed. a drag car is built to perform on a drag strip where as a Ferrari is built to perform on a race track. this does not mean that a Ferrari is inferior to a drag car as you can race a Ferrari on a drag strip but it is impossible to race a drag car on a…

### How long does it take to stop from 65 mph?

You need to know one other thing to answer this question. The acceleration of the braking. The formula is: t=v/a where t is the time, a is the acceleration and v is velocity. For example, in a regular car, to stop from 65 mph (95.3 ft/sec) at a deceleration of 1G (32 feet per secondÂ²) would take 2.98 seconds. Incidentally, it would take 142 feet to stop ( formula s=Â½atÂ² where s is distance). I…

### 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
