Why the potential energy is unlimited?

Mechanical energy is just produced by the movement of objects according to the definition of it. 
Force is the cause to change the movement of the objects by the first law of Newton. Therefore force is the real source of mechanical energy.
The force (outside force) is limited. However, gravity is a special force which is unlimited.

    At present, the potential energy is generally
    agreed that it comes from the movement of objects being taken from low to high.

    But people have ignored that the kinetic
    energy has already been consumed during the period of movement.

    The movement of objects takes place depending
    on the force acted on. Without force acting on the objects maintain static.
    Even with equal forces from opposite directions act on each other, they can't
    move as well. Gravity is just in this condition.

    In a word, force is energy itself or a form of
    expression of energy just like the electric energy, the heat energy and so on.

    Referring to the Torricelli experiment, We put a
    cylinder with water into a water basin ( set a splints in the upper part
    of the cylinder, switched by lines), get a inflated balloon with a hollow
    tail from the bottom of the cylinder, when the balloon floated up to top,
    release the air by pulling the switch wire of the splints, then pulling the
    deflated balloon out.  In
    the course of the experiment, W1=G(water)h, W2=G(air)h,
    W3=G(water)h=P(atmospheric pressure)V . We will get W1 from W2, and W3 from the
    atmospheric pressure  will
    compensate for W1.

Potential energy is unlimited simply because it's not used yet.
Once you start using it, it eventually ends.

Its all about what"creates" the force and not the force itself.Force is a by product of an earlier process.Gravity is a good thing but its only free one way takes energy to get back up the hill.Very bazaar topic to post on fixya not sure what sort of answer your after but it was good to consider something outside left field.Good luck with your search for a global solution.

    Wow your a genius but inappropriate doesnt seem to be a word even you understand,comment 2 was inappropriate so now i deserve that vote.Is force naturaly occuring No it isnt,therefore another action/process comes into play.Gravity is only there due to planet rotation but how do you as smart as you are,harness it.Some thing makes force wether its asyou say electric,heat etc so that means another process comes first as i believe i said in the first comment i posted.Force is a by product of an earlier process and the ability to harness and use that force effectively is the key.In your own words force is an expression!What people ignore?The stupid ones?You will not find the key to perpetual motion either but you sound like a first year science grad with dreams and hopes outside the box so keep studying and dreaming and you may one day contribute your own theories and ideas.

How maximum increase horse power output force of inductiom motor of 2hp using loadwheel or flywheel and how much hp force it can be increase. Plz describe detail.

induction motors develop max hp at the set RPM and current setting according to the windings in the motor. The use of flywheels in the system help the motor to hold steady rpm when a sudden load is applied as the stored energy in the spinning flywheel overcomes the sudden draw of power and stops the loss of rpm's . If you want more HP get a bigger motor.. ( HP is now an irrelevant term as it not an accurate to describe the motor's capacity . The definition is now torque or the ability to turn a shaft That is why older motors were bigger and used more current than the smaller motors that produce more torque for less current

My ford ranger can not run a speed more 60km per hour, the thacometer is up to 2000 only, why?

The engine provides the speed capacity where the speedometer provides a visual reader. In this situation, two factors predict what is observed of the vehicle. First, the vehicles mechanical turbines would only allow a ford ranger to power as fast as observed. What contributes towards vehicle speed is cylnder spaces in which combustible piston pounders ingnite fuel in gasoline. The capacity of an entire mechanical combustion engine generates force for speed. However, an engine performs with component parts supporting the combustion process for speed to be achieved. A vehicle has an approximate space to fit an engine of combustible turbines,, lubricating channels, coolant systems, and lectrical requirements are only mentionable components that make engines function. The spaces provided for each vehicle as engine area factors into accomodate the entire components to perform desirely. Engines may derive force also converted into speed. However, a proportionate capacity to perform is factored into the contruction of a vehicle. The entire vehicle requires to be propelled by the engine. However, the vehicle only requires as much engine for propulsion. usually, the capacity of the engine is enough to provide force movement of the vehicle for as much luggage that was intended like with vehicle loader trucks. The requirements of the vehicle would cause the engine to require cpacity to hual, load least convertered towards faster speed. However, the entire purpose of the vehicle as loader would like have required enough capacity to retain integrity of functionility. It is posible for a similar size vehicle to be faster as manufuctureres default depending on the perpose intensions. Also, two similar capacity vehicles would perform differently with differently loads. Where for example, the ford ranger has similar capacity as VW beetly. However, a loaded ford ranger have a reduced speed from weight making incapable speed incomparison to the beetly. Also, the differenct vehicle perposes require different mechanical structures of performance. For example, a loader ford ranger requires speed tobe converted to torc for traction stability. Also, the ford ranger may have as much capacity. However, a loader truck is capable of hualing in steep turrains as a design specification. Compared to similar vehicle capacities that like the beetly that would rather convert traction into speed since is least loader. Altenatively, the ford ranger may have an indicator meter where Meter per hour has larger gradings compared to kilometers per hour. Ford ranger speedometer reading may be default as 60MPH also similar with another vehicle of similar capacity only displaying 120KPH. Two vehicles with either of those speedometer readings have similar speed capacities only differentiated according to engine functionality. Where for example a would require load stability rather than speed in fast motion like with least load carrier of similar capacity. Also, unless that the ford ranger is faulty requiring mechanical estimation would be likely cause of how 60 MPH would observed as slow. A slow motion engine requiring restoration would likely be due to combustion chamber malfunction explained. First, the engine block has gotten clogged cause from contaminated gasoline or simply several years of residue. Attempt cleaning the engine block by opening to scrapout, and flushout. Secondly, the replaceable parts in the engine block includes pistons that that get burnt due to over heating either as least engine oil, cooling capacity. Replacing the pistons should produce force of propulsion by preventing vacuum leakage in covertion energy. Thirdly, once cleaning a dirty engine block, it is requirement to change pistons performing in the same chamber. Hoever, the pistons perform with rings to tighen the grip onto the cykinder spaces to generate as much gasoline combustion and prevent energy exscape. Forthly, once the engine has been cleaned with each internal replaceable parts changed require external contributors to force of propulsion. For example,, the spark plugs provide fires for ignition always attached to the open spaces of the engine block. Changing sparks plugs are durational requirments. However, a burnt engine due to insuffient engine oil would automaticaly require replacements of sprk plugs. The remaining entities in the engine may contribute in little amount for force, however have unique functions of actions. Several additional factors that contribute towards vehicle speed of insigbificant levels are discuussed. The wheel setup contributes where stightened brake systems prevent faster motion though rather insignificant. Also, the tire pressues does contribute towards the propulsion capacity as an external contributor. Entirely, providing the vehicle appropiate tire pressures, alligning the wheels whenever any dents are experinced, and allowing loosen break pressures generates faster motion.

First, check with the vehicle manufacturer's website (or call them) for information about any potential recall. If it is a recall issue then you should obtain instructions directly from the vehicle manufacturer on what to do. Otherwise, check where the seats bolt to the frame of the vehicle(s) to ensure that the seats are not allowed to rock/shift by attempting to push/pull/rock the seats with a little force. Otherwise, there could be an issue with one or more of the mechanical components which adjust the seats.

How to unlock rear restraint from top or rear seat it will only release about 6 inches then locks up

It sounds like the mechanical part inside that seat belt mechanism is bad. If something hasn't fallen into it to cause this problem, you will probably have to replace the seatbelt. They are preset from the factory and should not be messed with. They are designed to lock up when the belt gets pulled fast. It uses a centrifical force type mechanism internally. You might see if there is a recall on it. Do check to see if any foreign objects have gotten inside of it. You will probably have to remove the whole unit from where it's mounted to be able to remove the covers and check for foreign objects. Good luck.

What is the tourqe? vaccum leak at intake

Torque, also called moment or moment of force is the tendency of aforce to rotate an object about an axis,[1] fulcrum, or pivot. Just as a force is a push or a pull, a torque can be thought of as a twist.

Loosely speaking, torque is a measure of the turning force on an object such as a bolt or a flywheel. For example, pushing or pulling the handle of a wrench connected to a nut or bolt produces a torque (turning force) that loosens or tightens the nut or bolt.

Vacuum leaks in manifold means u got a broken VACUUM hose that helps your HYDRAVAC to boost ur BRAKiNG power! Just look at ur BRAKE MASTER and u will see at the rear, there is this BiG ROUND drum, hose/pipe is attached to it, follow that hose/pipe it will lead u to the iNTAKE MANiFOLD, where air/fuel was being sucked by the ENGINE PiSTON!
