So while I was driving, I noticed some kind of construction truck and a thick chain came loose on the truck. This chain was about 1.5 - 2 inches thick. Only the very end of the chain was attached to the back of the truck. So there was this ~10 ft. chain that was just being dragged on the highway. So my car and his are going about 60 mph. What would happen if I drove over the chain? The wheels are going on a road at relative rest, and then one or two of the four wheels suddenly are on top of a chain going 60 mph. Would nothing really happen? Or a good chance at a swirving accident?

huh. interesting question...

i'd have to assume it would be like stepping on someones shoelace while they're walking or something...


That usually tends to stop the person who the shoelace belongs to. However, I would imagine the truck would be a fair bit heavier than the car, so it would not have the same effect. I'm not a very good physicist, so I can't say what would actually happen to the car, but if your car has traction control, it would **** it right up, and slam on the brakes. If not, it the sudden change in wheelspeed would probably **** up your steering a bit.

I don't know.

The truck would implode and create a small black hole capable of engulfing the universe.

The wheels would get traction on the chain. If it was horizontal, you'd likely just go over it like you would debris or something on the road. If it was vertical and for any reason it shifted, your wheel would follow it and you'd probably go off the road.

Well actually that wouldn't happen, there is however a good chance of splitting an atom when driving over the chain, err.. gravity Y'a know.

Well most vehicles today only power one of the four wheels, so it would depend which wheel hits the chain.

i would think if u went over the chain u would quickly slide off and the truck would go a lil slower and thats it
