    Articles and compound nouns

    Hi,

    1. How can I shorten the following sentences to avoid repeating of the parts "of a car", "of the car" IN A TEXT ABOUT CARS?

    2. The acceleration of a car is positive during the acceleration process of the car, and it is negative during the stopping process of the car.
    3. You can start the acceleration process of a car by pushing the accelerator pedal of the car.
    4. The intensity of the acceleration process of a car depends on the power of the engine of the car.

    5. Is it possible to write something like the following sentences IN A TEXT ABOUT CARS?

    6. Acceleration is positive during acceleration process, and it is negative during stopping process.
    7. You can start acceleration process by pushing the accelerator pedal.
    8. You can start the acceleration process by pushing the accelerator pedal.
    9. A slight pushing of the accelerator pedal will start weak acceleration process.
    10. A slight pushing of the accelerator pedal will start a weak acceleration process.
    11. The intensity of the acceleration process depends on the power of the engine.

    12. If they are wrong, could you correct them, please

    6. Acceleration is positive during the acceleration process, and it is negative during the stopping process.

    7. No.
    8. Yes.

    9, 10. Slightly pushing the accelerator pedal will start a weak acceleration process.
