One popular ride at carnivals is the Roundabout, which works in the following manner. Riders stand on the inside edge of a circle, with their backs against a wall mounted on the edge of the circle. The wheel begins to spin. Once it is spinning fast enough the whole wheel tilts...

sound waves travel faster in humidity than in dry air. But as temperature increases the velocity of sound also increases. So sound travels faaster in hot day than in winter. But during winter there is also presence of humidity in fog. Why doesn't sound travel faster in winter?

Two cars leave the same point at the same time, each travelling at the same constant speed and each having the same mass. The first car drives directly east, while the second car heads directly north. If the centre of mass of the two-car system is travelling at 51 km/h (i.e. ...
