How does hovercraft float?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Hovercrafts float on a cushion of air created by a large fan or impeller underneath the craft. This cushion of air reduces friction with the surface, allowing the hovercraft to glide smoothly over land or water. The airflow is directed downward, creating enough lift to support the weight of the craft.

If a black car and a white car are left in the Sun the black car will tend to be hotter. This is because the black car's surface will more light energy than a white car.?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

Yes, that's correct! Black surfaces absorb more light energy compared to white surfaces, which causes them to heat up faster and reach higher temperatures when exposed to sunlight. White surfaces, on the other hand, reflect more light energy, leading to less heat absorption and cooler temperatures.

What to do to make your snow blower throw more snow?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

To make your snow blower throw more snow, you can adjust the discharge chute to a higher angle so the snow is thrown further. Additionally, you can check and ensure that the auger and impeller blades are not worn out or damaged, as this can affect the throwing distance. Lastly, using a higher engine speed setting can sometimes help to increase the distance the snow is thrown.

Why does Briggs and stratton 5.5hp snow blower engine only runs with choke on?

User Avatar

Asked by Wiki User

When an engine only runs with the choke on, it usually indicates a problem with the carburetor not delivering enough fuel to the engine. The choke restricts the air supply, increasing the fuel-to-air ratio and compensating for the lack of fuel reaching the engine. Cleaning or adjusting the carburetor may resolve the issue.
