When a car is in neutral gear it still consumes fuel. The reason is that it has to keep the engine running which means keeping it above the engine’s specific min. revolutions per minute (rpm). For my testing car, a Toyota Yaris XP 90 (second generation; 3 doors; 1.33 liter 4 cylinder engine) this value equals approximately 600 rpm. Continue reading Fuel Consumption in Neutral Gear
Running one round on an outer lane in a stadium’s running track takes longer. The radius of the curve is larger and so is the overall distance of one round. But what exactly is the difference in length? Short answer: $\Delta s=7.037m$ per round. Continue reading Length of Outer Running Track Lanes
