General Physics of Cars



There are several ways in which cars demonstrate physics. For one, when you turn, hit the gas or brake, you can see the property of mass called inertia. Anybody or anything in the car tends to continue traveling in the direction the car was originally going in or stay still if the car was stopped.

Also, the physics behind tires show how cars move. As the tire spins, it uses the friction between it and the road to push the car forward. This is why in snow or mud, where there is little friction, the car cannot move.

Finally, the antenna and speakers work together to receive radio waves from the air and transmit them into your car as audible sound waves.
