It sounds like u need to replace the thermostat. At slower speeds the air flow through the radiator is minimal, but at higher speeds the air cools the radiator more. This only happens if the thermostat is not keeping the water in the engine block long enough.

High temperature speeds up movement in the molecules. This means with higher temperature, there is more energy

higher temperature makes the molecule mvoes more faster and speeds further apart.

They can bring warmer air, but typically they don't change it, and it feels colder.

why is my 1991 Mazda truck surging at higher speeds

Higher g's produced at higher speeds are harder to survive.

Because your motor is spinning faster at higher speeds causing higher rpm's

Because at higher speeds you have more velocity than at lower speeds transferring more energy to make a bigger crashing causing more damage.

ROUGHLY SPEAKING, that's what temperature is about.Actually, a higher temperature is more accurately described as the average energy per particle and per degree of freedom; but for one and the same substance, higher energy will also imply higher speeds.

A direct relationship; temperature is a measure of the speed of molecules, so a higher temperature means faster moving molecules and a higher rate of diffusion (molecules moving across a solution and/or through a permeable barrier) and lower temperatures mean slower speeds and a slower speed of diffusion.

Yes. It is doing more work at higher speeds and therefore is using more energy.

NASA can predict the speeds of the two Voyager craft very accurately. The main problem is defining where the "end" of the solar system is.

A rise in temperature speeds chemical reactions.

It is possible that the car has a governer on it which will stop the car from going faster than a preset speed. also a 98 Plymouth neon which i suspect has a 2.0 engine lacks high horsepower which is needed to make a car faster at higher speeds

My minivan was doing something very similar. Does the vibration/wobble stop when you let off the accelerator? Try coasting down a hill without touching the gas pedal; if the vibration stops when you let off and then starts again when you push on the gas pedal there's a good chance the vehicle has worn-out motor mounts. I was skeptical when my mechanic told me this, but after he replaced the mounts on my '92 Voyager 3.3 liter there was a huge improvement to the wobble/vibration that I had.

Temperature measures the average kinetic energy of molecules. The molecules of a substance move or vibrate at different speeds, causing something to be warmer/hotter or cooler/colder. The faster they move, the warmer it feels, and the higher the temperature. It can be measured in Fahrenheit, Celsius, and Kelvins.

Higher speeds involve higher forces which do more damge in breaking bones, etc. Ther force is f=ma = mdv/dt, the higher the speed the greater the deceleration on impact thus causing greater force on structures. There is also higher energy in higher speeds. At low speeds the energy and forces are smaller. The energy goes up by the speed squared, so twice the speed gives four times the energy. Twice the speed gives twice the force. The damage relates to the force the structures can take before damage.

no if you have the type of seat belt that you can keep pulling. They only work at higher speeds.

No, radioactive decay is not affected by temperature, at least, not in anything like a normal range. At millions of degrees, yes, it would speed up.

User Avatar

Not necessarily. Higher temperatures do increase the chance of a stronger tornado forming, but not necessarily. Scientists still don't really understand why one storm produces a tornado while another doesn't or why one tornado is stronger than another.

At moderate speeds, yes. For higher speeds or tight cornering, you might be causing a problem.

Check the fans on the radiator of the 1993 E-150 Van. The fans are supposed to turn on when the engine need cooled after reaching a certain temperature. This is usually due when the car is idling at lights or driving at higher speeds.

An increase in temperature speeds up the rate of diffusion. Conversely, a decrease in temperature slows down the rate of diffusion.
