Synonyms of "Run" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between run and operate ?
A: Both are appropriate terms, although "operate" is a little more formal. For example, "Part of the job requirement is to run the machine" in comparison to "Part of the job requirement is to operate the machine." The second phrase is more technical and therefore more formal.
Q: What is the difference between ran into and bump into ?
A: They mean the same thing, though "ran into" is past tense and "bump into" is present tense.

run into = bump into
ran into = bumped into

Examples:
I ran into Kevin the other day.
We bumped into our teacher today.

Though there are some contexts where "ran into" and "bumped into" would mean slightly different things, for example:

He ran into my car and now it's totaled!

If you said "he bumped into my car", that would mean he lightly crashed your car. You'd say ran into if it was a high speed accident.
Q: What is the difference between We can't run away. and We can't bail. ?
A: bail = 俗語
bailの語源は「bail out」→(飛行機からの)パラシュート脱出

bail = "run away" っていうより。。。去る・見捨てる・捨て去るだと思う。

パーティにて
A: Hey, where's Steve?
B: He said he had to go home and study for a test, so he bailed.
B: 試験があるから帰って勉強するといって先に帰ったよ。

パーティにて
A: This party sucks. Let's just go!
B: Dude, we're her friends. We can't just bail.
B: 友達だろう。 見捨てっちゃだめじゃん。
△ B: Dude, we're her friends. We can't run away. (言わないでしょう)
Q: What is the difference between run out of ammo and no ammo ?

"I ran out of ammo." ==> I had ammo, but I shot it all.

"I have no ammo/I don't have ammo." ==> A simple statement. I may or may not have had ammo before.
Q: What is the difference between after running or after run and run after or running after ?
A: After running - you are going to do something after you finish running

Running after - you are chasing something
