THE WHEEL'Z MAGAZINE
THE BIG ENTRY!!!
Wherever you are, Entourage Genuine Park Assist makes short work of any parking situation. Four colour-matched sensors are mounted on the rear of the vehicle, and the system emits an alert tone inside the cabin which beeps with increasing frequency as the vehicle reverses closer to objects behind.
Help keep your Entourage clean and free of mud, stone chips and debris with these hard wearing, moulded Mudguards.
With Interior Illumination, a discrete welcoming blue glow emanates from the footwells of your Entourage. The lights turn on automatically when a door is opened and stay on for approximately eight seconds after the last door is closed.
THE DESIGNING OF THE ENTOURAGE!!
When the car is accelerating, the car automatically pushes forward and rides into action. When the car is accelerating, the wheels undergo angular or rotational acceleration: they turn faster and faster. This therefore, accomplished by angular force called torque exerted by the engine on the axle. This would be unbalanced.
When the car is travelling at a constant speed, the forces acting on the car are thrust and drag. its is balance because If the forces of thrust and drag are equal, then the forces are balanced and the car will move with a constant velocity.
Newton's laws of motion are very useful in car design. These 3 laws are the Law of Inertia, F = ma, and For every action there is an equal and opposite direction. These laws are very important in car design because they initiate motion of Weight, Height, Thrust and Drag. For e.g. when a car stops suddenly the force becomes unbalanced because the road and the weight of the wheel and the road are pushing the towards each other for the car to move.
THE DANGERS OF THE ROAD...... AIRBAGS
The purpose of an airbag is to help the passenger in the car reduce their speed in collision without getting injured.
Objects in a car have mass, speed and direction. If the object, such as a person, is not secured in the car they will continue moving in the same direction (forward) with the same speed (the speed the car was going) when the car abrubtly stops until a force acts on them.
Every object has momentum. Momentum is the product of a passenger's mass and velocity ( speed with a direction). In order to stop the passenger's momentum they have to be acted on by a force. In some situations the passenger hits into the dashboard or windshield which acts as a force stopping them but injuring them at the same time.
An airbag provides a force over time. This is known as impulse. The more time the force has to act on the passenger to slow them down, the less damage caused to the passenger.
