Engineering Expert needed

Postby chrisusa » Sun Jan 12, 2014 1:13 pm

I need an expert in the engineering field who I can ask questions to about my project.

I`m testing: How does the mass of a vehicle affect its speed in kilometers per hour?
And I predict: If the vehicle has a filled inside, it`s completely filled in, then the vehicle will increase its maximum speed because it has more weight, on wheels, going down a hill creating faster acceleration.

Hello and welcome to the forums!

Do you have other questions you want to ask? It seems like you've developed your question and a prediction / hypothesis.

You might want to check out what Galileo said about this topic: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Galileo_Galilei#Falling_bodies

Let us know your questions!
Best, Keith
