If by cooling system you mean the cooling fan, it takes a while for the coolant temperature to rise enough to trigger the temperature sensor that activates the fan. This is to help warm up the engine and to avoid unnecessary operation of the cooling fan when it is not needed.

Why do cooling fans only come on when you turn on AC on your Honda CR-V?

The CRV has a very efficient cooling system and the fans only come on as necessary to assist cooling. When you engage the A/C they usually kick on for a minute or two to maintain coolant temperature and will kick back off if they are not needed. So, if you are not overheating you probably don't have anything to worry about. If you are overheating you probably have a bad fan relay.

I believe that the fan(s) come on automatically with the AC system. Someone else might be able to confirm that. If so, then I would guess that you need to find and replace the temp sensor/switch for the fans.

The A/C is supposed to cycle on and off and this is normal. If however it is cycling on and off very quickly or seems to not be cooling as it should, it more than likely has a leak and is low of refrigerant. Take it to a professional, have the leak repaired, and the system recharged.

How do the skeletal muscular and nervous system work together to help a soccer player kick a ball?

The nervous system works together with the muscular system by telling the muscles in the legs what to do. The brain is part of the nervous system and since it is the control of the body, it tells the muscles to kick or run. Also, sight is controlled by the nervous system and that is how players get to see the ball and kick it. There is 10 seconds left and you have the ball this is how to score the soccer ball. The nervous, muscular, and skeleton system work together to help you kick a soccer ball.The brain is part of the nervous system which means the brain can tell different partsof the body to do things called a response, like to tell the body to move its muscles to kick or run. The motor neurons send the stimulus travels through the spinal cord to the brain to to tell the muscle in the leg to kick the ball .The tendons that surround the joint which connects the two leg bones together, supports the muscle to do the movement then contract and relax. Also the nervous system controlls your sight so that the player can see the ball to kick it. Now you know how to kick a soccer ball so go score some goals.
