yes, it does. Since gravity effects the car going up a ramp, and the independant variable is the amout of gravity acting upon the car (weight), the more the weight, the slower the car goes up, and since the momentum of the car is weakened, it doesn't go as far. Think of newton 2nd law of motion: The relationship between an object's mass m, its acceleration a, and the applied force F is F = ma (in this law the direction of the force vector is the same as the direction of the acceleration vector).

The object's mass also effects it's speed and acceleration, it makes the car take more force in order to move it up the ramp if it's mass is increased. thus, proving the answer: yes.

Q: Does the heaviness of a toy car affect how far it will go off a ramp?

it all depends on the height of either the ramp or how far up the ramp the toy car rolls from

If the surface material is smoother and slipperier, the toy car will go faster. However, if the surface material is bumpier, then the toy car will not go as far.

The higher the ramps incline in affects how much work the engine has to put out. climbing up an average driveway requires very little from and average car. Going off-roading and going up steep hills means that the engine has to be able to put a lot more force on (FWD/RWD/AWD/4WD) to get up the hill. That means the engine needs to pump faster so that the wheels can push/pull the weight of the car up. As far as what causes the need for the extra work, that would have to be gravity. Gravity keeps cars down, and not down on any incline, down FLAT. Gravity does that to everything.

The Speed of the car multiplied by the time taken at the speed

the steeper the ramp, the farther the car goes. if your ramp is flatter, it won't go as far.

how does increasing the height of a ramp affect how far a ball rolls down the ramp

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.

in our experiment the higher angle 60 degrees slow the car down because of the severity of impact where slope/ramp touch the floor. the middle angle 30 degrees had best result with smoothest transition.

That depends on the toy car's weight, size, and the length and height of the ramp. Use science and math to figure this out.

well how big is ytour car and how far do you want it to go?

If the surface material is smoother and slipperier, the toy car will go faster. However, if the surface material is bumpier, then the toy car will not go as far.

Well technically yes, but to an extremely small amount. Weight = mass x strength of gravity. The strength of gravity at the surface of the Earth is around 9.81, and decreases the further away from the surface you go. In this sense, assuming how far the car jumps off the ramp affects the flight path of the car, it will mean the car will be closer or further away from the Earth (albeit by a tiny amount), meaning the strength of gravity acting on it would be less, therefore it would weigh less whilst it was in the air. The change would be minuscule and not detectable.

Yes

yes it is when you go off a ramp and try to get as far as you can from the ramp

If you want to pass the ramp, you need to drive the car and it will fly you out of the window. But you need to pass overs to get to that point. if you want to figure out how far away you are from that part, try using youtube.com and type in Shrink ray island.
