The inner front driveshaft joints are seizing (one or both). No real way of telling which one unless there in external boot damage. Flip a coin or be prepared to possibly replace both driveshafts with rebuilds.

### How does constant velocity differ from constant acceleration?

Constant velocity is a measure of distance traveled
per unit of time at a uniform speed, such as miles per hour or
feet per second. Constant acceleration is a measure of a
continuing increase in velocity per unit of time, as when a
car speeds up from 30 miles per hour to 40 miles per hour in 5
seconds, then from 40 miles per hour to 50 miles per hour during
the next 5 seconds. It will then have had a constant acceleration
of 10 miles per hour per 5 seconds.

### What is the force on a dragster with a mass of 900g if its acceleration is 322 miles per second?

Well, first of all, "miles per second" is a speed, not an
acceleration. I'll fix it
and make it an acceleration, in order to go on and find an
answer. Call the
acceleration 322 miles per second2 .
322 miles/second2 = 518,208.8 meters/second2
Force = (mass) x (acceleration) = (0.9) x (518,208.8) =
466,388 Newtons (rounded)
That's the same as about 104,844 pounds . . . an awful
lot of force, but the
really amazing part is the tires that can hold the track with
that kind of torque.

### How to find magnitude of acceleration?

Rule:
Magnitude of acceleration = Change of velocity / Time
interval
In linear motion, magnitude of acceleration is the measurement
of change in speed in speed per unit time. For example: A car
reaches a speed of 20 miles per second in 4 seconds, the magnitude
of acceleration is 5 miles per second.
a = 20 miles/second divided by 4 seconds = 5 miles per
second.
Acceleration is a vector, which means it has magnitude and
direction. To describe accelerated motion completely, the direction
also needs to be included. So it would be 5 miles per second in
whatever direction it is going.

### What distance is traveled by accelerating from 0 mph to 64 mph if acceleration is 8 miles per second?

Assuming that the rate of acceleration is constant and 8 miles
per second2 NOT 8 miles per second, as stated,
then v2 = u2 + 2as where
v = final velocity = 64 mph
u = initial velocity = 0 mph
a = acceleration = 8 miles/s2
s = distance travelled (in miles)
so s = (v2 - u2)/(2a) = 64*64/(2*8) = 256 miles.
