There are many factors that can be causing this. It sounds like you are losing fuel pressure and there are many things that contribute to it. To begin with a basic, check your air filter. If it is clogged, the engine can get enough air to breathe when idling but when accelerating it starves for air. Check that first. Your fuel pump may be going out. It develops enough pressure to keep the engine at idle but when the demand for fuel is needed, it doesn't supply enough pressure to keep up with demand. Your fuel filter may be clogged restricting the flow of fuel from the tank to the engine, I would check this second after the air filter. Your injectors may be clogged, supplying just enough fuel to idle but not enough at demand. Run 2 or 3 bottles of Techron available at Walmart or Autozone. Add it to your gas tank. The Techron cleans a lot of the sulpher off the fuel pump and even the fuel gauge sending unit. It can't hurt If you can find someone with a fuel pressure gauge that can be attached to the fuel rail, have them check your fuel pressure. Your MAF (Mas Air Flpw Sensor) may need cleaning Your TPS ( throttle position sensor)may be going out. If the engines stumbles or shudders many times it will set a check engine light and by having the code read from your car's diagnostic port, you can get an idea of at least where to begin to look for your problem. To isolate it to one thing without some testing is like shooting in the dark.

What would cause the rear end on a 2006 Ford Mustang GT to shutter before correcting itself when accelerating from a dead stop?

You are breaking traction and experiencing "wheel hop". It is normal and can be reduced (traction improved) with a good set of upper and lower control arms.

Do shutter shades have a plastic or glass lens or are they just plastic lines like normal glasses have glass and no lines but do shutter shades have that underneath?

they don't have nothing underneathit's just the plastic lines

Can the normal force ever be greater than the weight?

Yes the normal force can be greater than the weight. When accelerating upwards in an elevator, the normal force is greater than one's weight.

How can use The Shutter Angle in Video?

Shutter Angle refers to the length of time film is exposed in a motion picture camera, based on the shape of the rotary shutter. 180 degrees is considered normal (when shooting at 24 frames per second). This means the film is exposed for 180 degrees or half of the rotation of the shutter or 1/48th of a second. The primary purpose of changing your shutter speed is controlling how much motion blur is captured. The slower the shutter (the larger the shutter angle), the more motion blur. In some video cameras you can crank your shutter speed higher to create a stop-motion effect or slow your shutter to 1/30th or 1/24th and create a blurring effect for specific shots. I have also heard of people using a slower shutter because it looks more "filmic" this is a matter of taste. All video cameras (to my knowledge) that allow for manual control of the shutter speed give these controls in 1/Nths of a second (1/48th, 1/60th). If you are shooting with a conventional video camera in the United States or another NTSC country your typical shutter will be 1/60th, meaning each frame was captured over 1/60th of a second. For Europe and Asia, along with most of Africa, South America, Australia your shutter will be 1/50th. Some newer digital video cameras targeted towards digital cinema allow you to display your shutter speed in degrees, as if you were controlling shutter angle (Panasonic AG-HVX200 as an example). Also they allow you shoot at 24 frames per second and to use shutter speeds that fit closer with that frame-rate, like 1/24th, 1/48th.
