Check your spark plug wires, you could have an ark (arch) not sure on spelling. At low rpms, you have less voltage going through wires, which means.. when you push more power, it will have a stronger connection. If that isn't the case, check your fuel pump or filter. Also, to help answer your question, tell the world if it happens when it's cold, or hot, or all the time. -Eddie

Is it possible to buy a hard drive for a laptop that spins at the higher speed of 7200 rpm?

Currently the fastest speeds are 10000 rpm for most available Hard drives. This only generally indicates that a HDD is superior, although you'd not pick a 5400 rpm drive because it would be slow.

Can you combine a 5400 rpm hard drive with a 7200 rpm hard drive?

In a raid? Yes. By mashing them together to create a 12600 rpm drive? No.

Will driving in 2nd gear instead of drive hurt my car?

It will cause the engine to run at a much higher RPM thus burning more fuel. If you are forced to drive like this, I would not exceed 50 mph.

What's RPM for hard drives?

Revolution per minute is a measurement of how fast the drive platters rotate. Usually a faster rotation means faster access and read/write speeds. However most users would not notice the difference between a 5400 rpm drive and a 7200 rpm drive. The 10000 rpm drive is usually reserved for high end gaming.

Would you notice a difference between a hard drive with 7200 RPM and a hard drive with 4200 RPM I want make sure I get a very fast laptop.?

Yes you would notice a difference. Also, if you can get a HD with a better cache, you would notice a difference as well.

Does a higher rpm make your computer go faster?

Basically, yes. Assuming you're referring to the hard drive, the RPM is how fast the drive spins. If it spin faster, it can locate the data faster, but keep in mind it will also use more energy and get hotter.

Will an ignition coil fail at a higher rpm under load but not at idle?

Yes it would

Will your video games load faster if they are installed on a hard drive other than the boot drive?

That is entirely dependent upon the speed of the hard drive, if the other hard drive has a higher RPM, or read/write time, then yes it will.

If you have motor rpm motor shaft sizeblower pulley size how you get blower rpm?

Drive Pulley = pulley on motor Driven Pulley = pulley on blower First determine your Ratio - divide large pulley size by small pulley size this will give you gear ratio, Example 2" drive pulley and a 4" Driven Pulley = 2:1 gear ratio If you know your motor shaft RPM divide that number by the ratio to get the RPM of the driven pulley, if your shaft rpm is 1800 rpm you would divide 1800 by 2 which would = 900 rpm on your driven pulley if your drive pulley is larger than than your driven pulley you multiply the rpm by the ratio example 1800 rpm x 2 = 3600 rpm

Does a higher capacity drive or lower capacity drive perform faster?

The data transfer speed of a device is not fully dependant on its size. With certain file systems, larger drives will perform slower because of the way the files are stored; this is why NTFS is used rather than FAT32 for large hard drives. However; the size of the drive is not the biggest factor in speed. For example, a 7200 RPM drive is usually faster than a 5400 RPM drive, even if the 7200 RPM drive is much larger in storage size.

What are the three spindle speeds for a magnetic hard drive drive?

Common current values are 5400 rpm, 7200 rpm, and 10000 rpm. However, these are not the only possible values.

What is relation between power and RPM?

Horsepower is calculated from RPM and torque. The higher the RPM you can sustain an engines torque at, the higher the Horsepower. Horsepower and Torque are always the same amount at 5250 RPM with all but diesel powered engines. Also the more rotational mass you can spin at a higher rpm, the more energy it poseses.

What does RPM in a car mean?

RPM is short for Revolutions Per Minute. It is the measurement of how many times your engine is rotating each minute. As you accelerate, your RPM will increase until the next gear is selected, lowering the RPM. RPM is the whole reason for transmissions: if there was only one gear the RPM would get so high that the engine would become damaged. By shifting into higher gears, the RPM is lower and you get better gas mileage.

What is over drive for the ford exporer?

Overdrive is an extra gear assembly in the transmission that allows the engine to run at a lower speed (lower RPM) when you are travelling at higher speeds on the highway or freeway. For example, if I am driving my 1995 Explorer at 62 mph in drive, the engine runs at 2800 RPM. If I am driving at 62 MPH in overdrive, the engine runs around 2100 RPM.

What are four speeds in revolutions per minute that the spindle inside a hard drive might rotate?

What is the Difference between 7200 rpm HD and 10000 rpm HD?

A 7200 RPM hdd spins at 7200 RPM, 10000 RPM spins at (you guessed it) 10000 RPM. A 10000 RPM HDD should transfer data faster than a 7200, and apart from the WD "Raptor" series most 10000 RPM HDDs are high end SCSI (Small Computer System Interface) drives, and as such are built to a higher standard than IDE (Internal Drive Electronics) or SATA (Serial AT Attachment) drives.

What does the "RPM" mean, and is higher or lower better?

RPM = Rotations Per Minutes. the higher the rotation speed, the faster your computer can read/find your files.

What is RPM of a hard drive?

RPM or Revolutions Per Minute for a hard disk drive of a computer is speed at which the spindle which holds the disk platters revolves. Although there are many parameters affecting performance, faster RPM allows for higher data throughput and performance to the drive. As disk revolution speed increases, the internal data transfer rate (data transfer rate when reading or writing data) increases. Most common drives these days have 7200RPM speed.

RPM in term of car power?

torque is at low rpm, horse power is at higher rpm. as you gain hp, you lose torque and vice versa.
