Could depend on the age of the vehicle, but most likely a problem with your clutch, but it's more likely that it's your transmission, have everything checked out to make sure everything's working properly.

### How force is changed when machines increases force?

It depends on the working principle of the machine. Like for example in a gear mechanism if you replace the bigger gear with an even bigger one then a smaller amount of force would rotate the smaller gear in the same angular velocity as the initial gear did but with a greater force. But now if you increases the force in the bigger gear the smaller gear would tend to rotate more fast.

### If you're in neutral at an intersection is it ok to skip first gear and go straight to second when the light changes?

If you are sitting at a light and you start in second, it won't usually stall your car. However it is not a good idea to always do this because if this is how you always shift, your transmission will not last very long. When you do shift back to first gear, be sure that your car has stopped completely-it's not good to force the car into first gear.

### When do you use drive in a standard transmission car?

There is no drive in a standard transmission car. In most cases you will have reverse, neutral, 1st gear, 2nd gear, 3rd gear, 4th gear, and 5th gear.
