### Why is a small amount of indicator added during titration?

An indicator shows when we have added just enough of the second
reagent to react with the first. If you mean why do we add only a
small amount of indicator, it is to keep the answer accurate. Some
of the reagent is used changing the indicator so the answer is
always slightly bigger than perfection, and the more indicator you
add, the larger the error.

### How do you adjust your Toyota Tazz handbrake tension?

First make sure the the rear brakes are correctly adjusted.
Next thing is to make sure the front wheels are choked so that
the car does not roll during adjustment. Now release the handbrake.
Next to the handbrake you will see two nuts on a threaded shaft.
The bottom one is used for adjusting the handbrake whilst the top
one is just a lock nut to stop the bottom nut from working
loose.
You will need to loosen the top nut and then turn the bottom nut
to adjust the handbrake. The handbrake should be adjusted so that
it holds the car when clicked 4-7 times.

### Explain what has to happen for an object to accelerate?

Acceleration is a rate of change of motion. It's usually
measured in x squared, or x per second, per second. Acceleration
may be a rate of change (not a change, a rate of change) such as:
Zero to 50 miles per hour may be ten miles per second, per second.
The first second, he was going 10 mph...the second second he was
going 20 mph... the 3rd second he's going 30 miles per hour....
So...the acceleration is 10 exponent 2 or 10 miles per second
squared. For acceleration to happen, an object must continue to
increase it's speed. It has to go 10 then 20 then 30 then 40 then
50 miles per hour to accelerate. A RATE of change of speed.

### When can you tell if you have aids?

There are two conditions you must meet. First is being positive
for HIV infection, and you determine that through a blood test.
The second is having an "indicator disease" like Kaposi's
sarcoma or pulmonary tuberculosis. If you are HIV positive without
an indicator disease, you're just HIV positive. For instance, Magic
Johnson is HIV positive, but he never developed an indicator
disease so he doesn't have AIDS.

###### Asked in Astronomy, Physics

### The rate for which all objects accelerate towards earth?

The acceleration of gravity is 32 feet per second per second, or
9.8 meters per second per second.
So, an item dropped from a tall building will fall 16 feet in
the first second (accelerating from zero to 32 feet per second),
and 48 feet in the next second, reaching 64 feet per second. (This,
as usual, ignores air resistance; if it is a dandelion seed, it
might have dropped a foot or two in that time. )

###### Asked in Physics

### Why doesnt a heavy object accelerate faster than a light object?

You must be talking about the effect of gravity on the two
objects.
It takes more force to accelerate a more massive object, and
less force to accelerate
a less massive one. You know that if you've ever tried to push a
bicycle first and a
battleship second.
Gravity attracts a more massive object with greater force, and a
less massive object
with less force, so the result is that they both fall with the
same acceleration.
