Windshield Repairs in Upper Macungie Pennsylvania
Lots of car components seem to be unexplainable for many. That being said, your car's windshield should not be classified in that group. Like other things in life, when your windshield is working correctly, we do not think about it. On the other hand, whenever there is an issue, it ends up being a serious matter.
Windshield glass is a type of laminated glass. It incorporates two layers of specific composite glass with a laminate in between the layers.
In many cases the inner layer is made of vinyl plastic. This inside layer adheres to both outer layers. This serves to hold both layers together and provides a surface in case of shattering for glass fragments to stick to.
Cars that are newly built have windshields installed by robots in the factory. This is a tightly governed and monitored environment. Digital alignment and installation procedures guarantee that both molding and windshield are accurately fitted. Learn more about Upper Macungie windshield repair from your local repair professional.
Damaged windshields are a safety risk, therefore they need to be serviced as soon as there are any signs of damage. Due to the specialized manufacturer's installation and testing, the very best scenario is to keep the original glass in place. Provided that the damage is minimal, like a small chip or crack, this is practical. A brand new windshield will be required when the crack has become too large to repair or if the chip or crack is in the field of view of the driver.
If spotted early enough the bright side is that a tiny chip or little crack can likely be fixed by do-it-yourself solutions. Although this is an option, we still highly recommend that these simple fixes be tackled by an auto glass service center.
Lots of people discredit the benefit of a chip repair. But, if not taken care of right away, the problem can become worse.

Who Pays For My Broken Car Window?
Currently 1:30Am...The Neighbors Got Into A Fight At Around 12:30Am And Ended Up Shattering My Side Window Of My Parent'S Mini Van.
The Neighbors Were Drunk (Party Or Something. It'S Monday Night For Goodness Sakes) And When Someone At The Party Went To Go Break Up The Fight, They Started Throwing Beer Bottles And One Of Them Sailed Through The Window (From What The Police Said) Shattering It Completely And Made A Hole In One Of The Side Glove Compartments Inside To Where It Doesn'T Shut Anymore.
When The Police Were Doing The Report And Taking Crime Scene Photos, The Neighbors Werent Anywhere To Be Found And We Didn'T Even Get An Apology :/ So My Mom And I Just Ghetto Taped And Boarded Up The Broken Window And Cleaned Up The Glass.
The Police Said That There Isn'T A Good Chance The Neighbors Are Gonna Have To Pay Anything So We Don'T Know What To Do. I'M Not Sure If We Can Afford The Deductible And The Rise Of The Insurance Rate If They Make It Go Up Monthly.
What'S The Best Thing We Can Do About This Situation To Not Have To Pay Anything? People Suck.
If your van has comprehensive insurance coverage, turn this in to your insurance company. If you have a comprehensive deductible, you pay that and your insurance company will pay to fix your car and then THEY and their LAWYERS will go after the neighbors for reimbursement. If they collect, your deductible will be returned to you. Case closed.
If you have no comprehensive coverage, you may have to sue your neighbors in small claims court to recover.
In my opinion having a comprehensive deductible is penny wise and pound foolish. Comp claims tend to be small. With a deductible, you are almost always self insured because comp claims tend to be small. Why pay for something you can seldom use?
Comprehensive claims are not "surcharge-able".

Broken Window, Who Pays?
A Window Was Broken In My House. I Opened The Window And Walked Away For An Hour Or So When It Slammed Shut And Cracked The Glass. Am I Responsible For Repairing The Window? In Our Lease It Says &Quot;Landlord Is Not Responsible For Small Repairs Under $75&Quot; This Will Cost More Than $75 To Fix. He Claims That It Was 'Common Sense' That I Need To Prop The Window Open Where As The Other Windows I Have Used In The House Stay Open Fine. Should He Have Told Me That I Needed To Prop Open The Window? Should He Be Responsible For Making Sure All The Windows In The House Are Able To Be Opened Or Provide Us With Proper Propping Materials?
Also How Much Does It Cost To Fix A Window?
Well if all the other windows stay up,,,,
Does it and the others have a mechanism to keep it up, if the mechanism failed then it isn't your fault.
How long have you lived there, if for a while and it always stayed up, why should you have a reason to believe it needs propping,
anywhere from $25 to several hundred, depending on the window and who ever fixes it.
where are you located I know someone good and reasonable
Ask him if his trunk always stays up and he never props it and one day he is retrieving his grocery's out of it and it smashes down on his head, who is at fault?...
Or just ask him if he props the trunks of all the cars he ever owned,
If it is an old wood window, you may should have propped it, but if you fix the window tell him you want proper window securing devices installed because it is a hazard and you would hate to see a little kid look out of a window and knock the prop out by mistake and the little kids head get smashed. Whos fault would it be then?
An Unfortunate Bug Splatters On The Windshield Of A Car.?
Compare And Contrast The Forces, Impulses, Momentum Changes, And Accelerations Of Both The Bug And The Car. Please Show Me How To Solve This Question, This Is For My Physic Retake!
Newton's 3rd law of motion say that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.
So the force exerted by the bug on the car is equal to BUT in the opposite direction to the force exerted by the car on the bug ... so F(bug on car) = -F(car on bug)
Impulse = FΔt
F(bug on car) = -F(car on bug)
Δt is the bug splatter time ... so Δt is equal for both the car and the bug
and that means the impulse of the bug on the car is equal to but in the opposite direction to the impulse of the car on the bug
so Impulse (bug on car) = -Impulse (car on bug)
Impulse = change in momentum = Δp
so Δp (bug) = -Δp (car)
also momentum is conserved ... so the TOTAL momentum of the bug/car system will not change
F = ma
so m(bug) * a(bug) = -m(car) * a(car)
a(bug) = -m(car) * a(car) / m(bug)
and a(car) = m(bug) * a(bug) / -m(car)
m(bug) <<< m(car)
so -m(car) * a(car) / m(bug) >>> m(bug) * a(bug) / -m(car)
and so the magnitude of a(bug) >>> the magnitude of a(car) ... [actually the acceleration of the car would be almost zero ... but the acceleration of the bug is deadly]
