in the second and a half that most people take to react to brake lights or some other thing, the distance the vehicle travels depends on the speed the vehicle is traveling. At 70 miles per hour, the vehicle will travel about 10 car lengths, but at 25 miles per hour, the vehicle will only travel about 2 car lengths. Unfortunately, going faster does not make us react any faster, but it does mean that the distance that is traveled while you are reacting is going to be longer.

Is it that reaction distance increases with speed while the reaction time stays the same?

Yes, the reaction distances increases with speed while reaction time stays the same. for example the two-second rule.


If the distance traveled increases and the time of travel stays the same what happens to the speed?

Speed Increases. - Apex(;


What happens to the momentum when the mass increases and speed stays the same?

It increases


If mass increases and distance stays the same then the force of gravity between two objects does what?

BAD ANSWER: if the mass increases and the distance stays the same then the force of gravity between two objects does what?BETTER ANSWER: If the mass or distance increases and the distance or mass stays the same the then force of gravity between the two objects INCREASES. If the mass or distance DECREASES and the distance or mass stays the same then the force of gravity decreases.


If the waves speed stays the same what decreases as the frequency increases?

The wavelength decreases.


An object is dropped and is in free fall The speed of the falling object and the distance it falls are measured every second Which of the following is correct?

The speed stays thesame but the distance stays the same.


If a wavelength of a wave stays the same what happens when the wave period increases?

It decrease in wave speed.


What happens if mass stays the same and distance in creases what happens to the force of gravity between 2 objects?

If mass increases and distance stays the same, then the force of gravity between two objects increases.If mass decreases and distance stays the same, then the force of gravity between two objects decreases.If mass stays the same, and distance decreases, then the force of gravity between two objects increases.If mass stays the same, and distance increases, then the force of gravity between two objects decreases.


What if mass stays the same and distance increases?

The force of gravity between two objects will decrease in proportion to the square of the change of distance between them.


What happenes to the wave speed as the wavelength increased?

Velocity = Frequency * Wavelength. If the wavelength increases and the frequency stays the same, then the speed of the wave will increase.


What will happen if the velocity of a wave increases and the wavelength stays the same?

Assuming an electromechanical wave not much. The speed of the wave depends on the medium that the wave is passing through. In a vacuum it is the speed of light, through something else a lesser speed. The wavelength stays the same and the frequency stays the same.


If mass increases and volume stays the same what happens to density?
