  • Highway With Higher Speed Limits
    2,282 words
    Devin Maier October 23, 1999 English 102 McCrady Life in the Fast Lane Humans in the twentieth century live in an era characterized by an unrelenting desire for speed. The ability to go faster and accomplish more often seems to be the option of choice. Everything from the information super highway to the interstate highway is dominated by this need for speed. Whether it is fast food or fast cars, more powerful search engines or automobile engines, the fact of the matter is people rarely stop to ...
  • Speed Limits On Highways
    1,308 words
    ... ir speed limits, there was a surprising change. Out of the 26 states over half of them observed an increase in fatalities per one hundred million miles. But the fact that the total death rate is down from 24,911 people in 1995 to 24,855 in 1996 is of much more importance. Some of the most notable decreases in fatalities include Mississippi- down 21 percent, and Montana -down 10 percent (Chaser). Montana is a wonderful example not only because of its decrease in fatalities but because of its ...
  • Wheels To The Boot
    494 words
    COMPONENTS: Wheels: The diameter is the height of the wheel, which ranges from 43 to 80 mm. As diameter increases, cruising speed increases and maneuverability decreases. (2) The durometer is the hardness of the wheel. Wheels use the A scale from 0-100.100 would be a very hard plastic. Softer wheels have more shock absorption, greater turning ability, and wear faster. (2) A wheels profile is the point where the wheel touches the ground. Traction and stability increase with an increasing profile ...
  • Inquiry The Relationship Between Force And Mass
    485 words
    Inquiry 2: Force with varied mass Introduction: In this inquiry the relationship between force and mass was studied. This inquiry presents a question: when mass is increased is the force required to move it at a constant velocity increased, and how large will the increase be? It is obvious that more massive objects takes more force to move but the increase will be either linear or exponential. To hypothesize this point drawing from empirical data is necessary. When pulling an object on the groun...
  • Maximum Speed Of A Tank
    1,747 words
    Ever since the introduction of the tank into modern ground combat, it has been a bold symbol of armies of all countries. Its beginnings based on that of a farm tractor, the tank now looms large over battlefields as a worthy foe, and is in many cases the backbone of most modern day ground maneuvers. The tank was first developed by the British and the French during World War I. These tanks were very slow (road speed was about 5 mph) and were used only for infantry protection. Although they had som...
  • Ramp Meter
    508 words
    Ms. Elaine Jones Dear Ms. Jones, Congratulations on your recent move to Milwaukee. This truly is a great city, and every member of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation strives to make it even greater. Part of this effort is the incorporation of ramp meters into the local freeway system. While waiting in line at the entrance ramp, it may seem as though the meter is inefficient, but once you enter the freeway, your travel time and convenience is greatly improved. Milwaukee is not the only ci...
  • Speed Range Shock Waves
    1,130 words
    Used in Miami Florida, Palmetto Middle School, Mr. Sams. Aerodynamics is a branch of fluid mechanics that deals with the motion of air and other gaseous fluids, and with the forces acting on bodies in motion. The motion of an airplane through the air, the wind forces exerted on a building, and the operation of a windmill are all examples of aerodynamic action. Bernoulli's Principle One of the fundamental laws about the motion of fluids is Bernoulli's Principle, which relates an increase in flow ...
  • Increase In The Fluid's Speed
    900 words
    Science: Physics: Airplane March 22,199 Research: Airplanes are an efficient way of traveling to far places. Airplanes are amazing if you know what and how the air keeps the plane airborne. There are three components of flight: aerodynamics, the Bernoulli principal and supersonic flight. Some other things about flight are the four forces, lift, drag, weight, and thrust. One of the basic things you need to know about airplanes is that the places where the plane can balance on one point called the...
