A car can go up to 75 mph in 5 seconds

At 60 MPH you would travel 88 feet per second. 5 x 88 = 440 feet in five seconds.

When driving with ac on in city traffic what is reason ac does better on highway driving.?

First the car engine and thus the air conditioning compressor are running faster at highway speeds, so the unit is capable of more cooling. Second highway speeds force more air over the condenser coils which are in the front of the car, which means they are more efficiently cooled by the outside air thus allowing the system to more efficiently cool the inside of your car. You might want to check the "charge" of the system if it gets really cold on the highway, and is less than adequate in the city.

How much of a cushion should you keep between you and the car in front of you under normal driving conditions?

2 to 5 seconds, depending on what speed you are travelling and the weight of your vehicle. The faster you go or the heavier your vehicle is, the more distance you should have between vehicles. Check the time by taking note of some landmark such as a sign or overpass, and when the car in front reaches it, start counting seconds. When you pass that same landmark, stop counting. If you're doing city speeds (around 30mph/50kph), you should have 2 or 3 seconds between. At highway speeds (around 60mph/100kph), you should have more like 5 seconds between.
