Best Answer

It depends on the ramps slope.

if it was straight down, the cars would fall down the ramp at the speed of gravity, which is 9.8 meters per second

No. Gravity is NOT speed, it is acceleration. In the absence of air resistance, the car would accelerate at a speed of 9.8 ms-2

How does mass affect a cars speed down a ramp?

The car's mass should have no effect on that speed.

Why does the height of a ramp affect a toy cars speed going down it?

Because a higher ramp gives more potential energy than a shorter one.

Does the weight in toy cars matter to race on a ramp?

yes.. if it matters for a real car then it does for a toy car.. gravity and momentum either way

What is the reason your toy cars moved down the ramp?

This is the result of gravity, or the pull earth gives off.

How do you make a toy car go fast down a ramp with out pushing it?

drop down a 89 degree slope, that way it will accelerate at the speed of gravity

Is there friction when a toy car rolls down a ramp?

Yes Friction between the wheels and the ramp and also friction between the body of the car and the air (unless the car and ramp are in a perfect vacuum) There will be additional friction in the bearings or ball race of the wheel / axle too

How fast can a toy car go down a tile ramp?

In optimal conditions such as infinite runway, performed in a vacuum, with a constant gravitational pull and a zero friction ramp the car could travel at the speed of light. For anything else it would depend on the ramp and the car. Also at what point you stop calling a ramp a ramp and start calling it a drop.

Does changing the height of a ramp affect the speed of the car going down the ramp?

Changing the slope of the ramp will affect the speed of the vehicle going down it.

Does the height of a ramp affect a toy car's speed going down it?

Yes. The height of the ramp does affect the speed going down it the higher the ramp the faster the car goes down it
