It will go faster because if you have a small/non-steep ramp the car will go slow and the ending point wont be that far, but if you have a ramp that is bigger/steeper the car will go faster and the ending point will be far.

What would make a toy car go down a ramp faster?

-- Steeper ramp.-- Lower friction in the wheel and axle bearings of the car.-- Better aerodynamic streamlining of the shape of the car.-- Make the car of iron and conceal a large magnet at the bottom of the ramp.

A cart is rolling down a ramp if the angle of the ramp is increased to make the ramp steeper the cart will do what?

Would a toy car go faster or slower down a ramp with sandpaper compared to a ramp with no sandpaper?

Sand paper causes FRICTION...which makes the car go slower. So a toy car would go faster down a ramp with no sand paper.

How will the angle of a ramp affect the speed of a car going down it?

The larger the angle of the ramp, the faster the car will go down it.

Why does the distance of a toy car increase when the height of the ramp is increased?

The car experiences greater acceleration from a steeper incline (i.e. you added energy to the system by raising the ramp). The car can then go further due to the increased force (F=ma).

If a toy car is being pushed down the ramp if you put sandpaper on the ramp does this make the car go faster or slower?

Slower, due to increased friction.
