The reason the rpm will go up but the car doesn't go higher than 40mph, may be that the transmission gears are burnt. you should take it to a transmission specialist to get a better diagnose. Burnt or low tranny fluid i would say that you have a plugged catylatic converter. your rpms will increase and you gain no speed

Is centrifugal acceleration a uniform acceleration?

In the rotating frame, it can be (though it doesn't have to be). In an inertial frame, no (though it can be uniform in magnitude).

Why does temperature does not rise during the process of boiling and melting though heat energy is constantly supplied?

How does decreasing force affect acceleration if the mass stays the same?

ANY net force will cause an acceleration. If the force is reduced, there will be less acceleration, though.

Velocity can only be identified by acceleration or time, even though we can also find it using force

Why does the acceleration of a merry go round change even though the speed stays the same?

Acceleration is always towards the center. In other words, for a person on the merry-go-round, the direction of the acceleration changes all the time; therefore the acceleration changes.

Before a falling ball reaches terminal velocity does it gain speed while acceleration increases or decreases and why?

As an object falls, it gains speed. But the acceleration on it is constant. The earth is pulling it back toward itself, and it does so at a constant or fixed rate of acceleration. Acceleration will not be increasing or decreasing during the "normal" acceleration of a falling body. It will remain a constant. Speed will be increasing as there is positive (though constant) acceleration. However, as the speed of the ball approaches termial velocity, the force of the air resistance will increase, so the magnitude of the acceleration will approach zero as the speed of the ball gets closer and closer to its terminal velocity.

Why there is no acceleration along x axis during projectile motion?

There is no force that acts upon the object in that direction. Gravity only acts on the y axis. Though there is some wind resistance that does cause a negative acceleration in the x direction. You are probably just being told to ignore this as it is usually negligible.

Can an object be increasing in speed as its acceleration decreases?

Yes. Even though the acceleration rate is decreasing, it is still accelerating but at a lower (or slower?) rate. When acceleration rate reaches 0, the speed stops increasing and remains steady.

What situation is there in which you can accelerate even though your speed doesn't change?

no because acceleration is the increase in velocity or speed.Answer:in the case of linear acceleration the speed must be increasing or decreasing to produce acceleration However, centripetal acceleration is acceleration that comes from a force that is not in a straight line, when the object moves circular pattern with radius, r. Unlike linear acceleration which has the acceleration in the direction of the applied force, centripetal acceleration has an acceleration tangential to the force. it is perpendicular to the line of movement

Why do engine looses acceleration after a certain speed?

Acceleration is the a change in speed or direction. Once a vehicle reaches a point where it is maintaining its speed but no longer increasing (or decreasing) the acceleration is zero. Even though you may be moving rapidly it is at a constant speed.

Can a bad head gasket affect acceleration?

Yes, it certainly can, though unless it's badly blown, it will only tend to affect acceleration at odd times - if it affects acceleration constantly, it is badly blown, and you are probably losing a pint of coolant a day. Heads up!
