Which is lighter titanium or carbon fiber?
Carbon fiber is lighter than titanium - or less dense, if you prefer to use something a bit more specific. Carbon fiber, even with resin applied to hold it in a given shape (and put on a thin plastic backing, which is often done), doesn't weigh as much as the same volume of titanium.
By:Venom751998: By strength-to-weight ratio NO. Steel and titanium both have about the same overall strength, but titanium is about 45% lighter than steel. However, it might be more expensive. If you can, check out carbon fiber. It is known to be 5x stronger than steel and 2x as stiff. By: venom751998
Why isn't carbon fiber used to make footballll helmets even thought it is stronger and lighter than polycarbonate the standard material for footballll helmet shells?
Carbon fiber is a lighter and stronger material to use and would theoretically be an ideal material to use for a football helmet. The problem is that carbon fiber has poor impact resistance. The University and Oregon University worked on a project to make a complete uniform out of carbon fiber. Article below. http://www.carbonfiberguru.com/2010/01/23/oregons-carbon-fiber-footbal-helmets/
I am assuming you are referring to the Bugatti Veyron. Bugatti has been building vehicles for years and have built many different types of cars. But the Veyron drivers cockpit is made of Carbon Fiber not titanium. Some titanium parts are used in the engine production. The body panels are made of carbon fiber and aluminum.
What are the differences between a kestrel 200sci carbon fiber bicycle and a kestrel 200ems carbon fiber bicycle?
The layup of the carbon fiber layers. The EMS version is a slightly lighter way to layer the carbon fibers with the resin. I believe any strength differences are negligible, and the EMS version also allows the cosmetic layer of carbon that can give the "nude carbon" look that is still popular today.
A stick with a a net on the end which consists of usually a separate metal or wooden stick, connected to the "head" of the crosse. This is from wikipedia.org The actual shaft is the part you hold, metal or composite generally. Shafts are made from alloys, titanium, titanium mixes, and copusites like carbon fiber and fiber glass with coatings.
