"He doesn`t have a rear windshield because the bowling ball hit it and made it explode."
RavenKing, what DavisBoy meant to say is they don`t NEED a rear windshield because they`re in the desert. He forgot to put the word `need` in there.
And finally, the question I was going to make... WHAT IS THE PURPOSE of throwing a BOWLING BALL onto a RAMP from a moving car????
He doesn`t have a rear windshield because the bowling ball hit it and made it explode.
Please go take a basic mechanical physics class.
Yeah, in videogame logic, maybe. The ramp redirected the ball upwards. Say the ball was going 30 mph and the ramp smoothly angled up 30 degrees. Then the ball is moving 30mph*cos(30)horizontally (~26 mph) and 30mph*sin(30) vertically (15 mph). So yes, the upward angling of the ball is slowing down its horizontal speed.
+ loss of energy due to bouncing up and down on the pavement and wind resistance, etc. The ball definitely would not have hit the car if he had kept driving at speed.
No. Vertical and horizontal acceleration velocities are independent of each other.
Frictional heat loss? You mean drag, that`s the more accurate term. And it doesn`t lose that much speed to drag.
I think it`s more because of the fact that the ball is travelling upwards as well as forwards. So while both car and ball were going at the same speed, the ball is travelling up too meaning less distance forwards. So by braking the car let the ball "catch up".
Kinetic energy lost going upwards instead of forwards is greater than the energy lost as heat due to drag. That energy loss is more or less equal to the kinetic energy lost when the car breaks due to friction. That`s why the ball hits the car.
There. I think that`s right. I feel like someone should put a "Kick Me" sign on my back and throw sharp pencils at my eyes.
Ya he was. xD
But his stupidity makes him seem dumb.
Nice road anyway~
And why were they throwing the bowling ball out of the car in the first place?
guy was kinda cute init tho . . .
