The largest subs in WWII were the Japanese I-400 Class subs; they could launch 3 airplanes.
The Los Angeles class submarine has an operating depth of "greaterthan 800 feet" according to official releases. It doubtless goes abit deeper. Some Russian boats, with their super tough titaniumhulls (as opposed to the steel hulls of the US Navy boats and otherRussian boats) can go deeper. How much… deeper? The Russians are alittle tight-lipped about that. Most think that depths in excess of3,000 feet were easily accomplished, and one report suggested that4,000 feet was within the reach of these vessels. People don'treally talk much about that kind of stuff. As you might guess, theinformation is classified. Submarines are considered to be"self-sufficient" and able to operate for extended periods withoutsupport vessels. This differentiates the submarine from thesubmersible. Let's just look at those a moment. Submersibles, which are not "true" submarines, operateindependently from support vessels. With these civilian or researchcraft, the depths involved would be greater than with submarines.The Trieste reached a depth of 10,900 meters, or more than 35,000feet when it dove the Pacific's Challenger Deep, the deepest spotin any ocean. The Alvin, the submersible that first dived the Titanic , can reach depths of 4500 meters. Alvin'sreplacement will be capable of reaching 6500 meters. (MORE)
Yes they can. They would follow the same route freighters use. But they would run on the surface. It would be far to dangerous for a submarine to make the trip submerged.
Generally, a submarine is a vehicle that is capable of operating independently under water. We usually think of them as being a manned vessel able to go to sea for an "extended" period of time and operate over a "large" range. The submersible is like an exploration submarine that has a "down time" o…f several hours and only operates within a short distance of a support vessel. Remotely operated vehicles are not usually considered submarines by this definition.. A link is provided to the Wikipedia article on the submarine. (MORE)
There's no reason you should not be able to. Most submarines are pressurized in a manner similar to airplanes. Obviously, if you are expecting soon, being on a submarine makes it slightly more difficult to get medical care.
As of 2014, a submarine can travel between 49 and 52 miles perhour. The exact speed depends on the make of the sub and whether itis traveling on the surface or under water.
The modern military submarines usually cruise around slowly to avoid detection and to hunt other submarines or perform other activities. But some, like the Los Angeles class boats, can top 33 knots. Top speeds are classified, as you can well imagine.
\n . the speed of a kart relies on its motor, set up with the kart, and most importantly the driver. . How ever fast it was to go plus adding nitrous and sick tires helps too! I prefer a high class jet engine for mine but it's up to you 250cc Superkarts have been clocked at 156 mph by the Daytona …City Police using a calibrated radar gun. This was at the Speedway during a World Karting Association Speedweek. Not official of course. The current land speed record organizations apparently will not let karts run. (MORE)
To enter or exit (or escape from) a submarine you must locate a hatch in the pressure hull. There is usually a hatch near the bow, the stern, and amidships, and each is set atop a feature called an escape trunk. The escape trunk is a small "compartment" with an inner hatch, and it is set up to provi…de a way to "lock out" a group of submariners that is making an emergency exit under water. A torpedo tube might also be used to escape. (MORE)
It varies by the type of submarine. United States, Russia, United Kingdom, China, France, and India are examples of nations who have or are assumed to have nuclear submarine capabilities. For security purposes, governments don't give out full specifications on their weapons of war, especially on …something as big, expensive, and instrumental as a submarine. The true depth information is classified, probably above "Top Secret". For the general US submarine fleet, the "official" answer is typically around 600 feet. (According to one Navy instructor it was changed from 400 feet when a documentary was aired accidentally showing footage of the depth meter at a depth of around that depth.) Any Navy in the world who operates a nuclear submarine is going to publish a low ballpark figure in the name of national security and secrecy. If everyone knew the exact depth a submarine could submerse to, it'd be easier to kill them. Wikipedia says a Soviet/Russian class Alpha submarine may have successfully operated at a depth of 4,300 feet. But rest assured whatever the published depth of submarine is, it many times greater than that. (MORE)
A long-stretched transmission, and an engine that can power it til the end, along with aerodynamics to enable it to run at high speeds.
Gt-40 0-60 in about the 3 to mid 3 sec rang and top speed somewhere over 220mph
On the surface, twenty knots is a very good speed (maybe a little too good) for a World War 2 sub. Submerged, speed fell off considerably because the hulls were not streamlined as they were after the war. Only Germany toward the end of the war developed submarines with streamlined hulls which made t…hem very fast when underwater. One of them was a small sumbarine which was powered by hydrogen peroxide (rocket fuel) and it could do twenty knots submerged but was extremely dangerous to operate. The other was diesel-electric with a streamlined hull and other improvements which gave it a submerged speed of sixteen knots, a very fast underwater speed for WW2. (MORE)
It depends...it can be stationary. The real answer? infinite slowness . well back when i was in nam....... honky ha ha
USN Gato class subs in WWII could about 20 knots surface, and about 9 knots underwater.
It depends on the type of kart - from 50 kmph for rent-a-karts to over 200 kmph for professional Superkarts.
WWII US Gato class subs could exceed 400 feet. ANS 2 - Some modern submarines can dive to at least 1,500 feet, some possibly even 2,000. -The Navies involved will never admit it
water is 800 times denser than air, no figure power requirements, directly proportional to velocity power equals speed- in this case true,. The design requirements wash out, so to speak. Theoretically atomic subs could go a lot faster than surface ships but anything like mach speed ( 760 MPh at sea …level) well, Mach charts have not even been computed for levels- below surface!

You will find most of the same jobs as any other ship. There is special training for the different equipment and the weapons used. Most destroyers carry torpedoes like the submarines. The propulsion is the same as the many nuclear powered surface ships. You won't find gunner's mates on board.
You, and the earth you're standing on, are hurtling at 100,000kilometres an hour around the sun. That's 62,000 miles an hour!
All submarines have specific design limits based on their overall hull construction material and shape. In general, the smaller, more compact, and spherical a submarine is, the deeper it can go, but that's not always the case. Hull material is a big factor as well. Most submarines today are built wi…th steel which has elastic properties, i.e., it can contract and expand with sea pressure many times without hull degradation. By contrast, a Titanium hull (e.g., a Russian ALFA) may be able to go deeper, but the properties of Titanium make it brittle when exposed to extreme pressure over time. Think of a the difference between squeezing a tennis ball repeatedly, and an egg - the egg will begin to crack well before the ball ever will. The other main reason is that at deeper depths, it doesn't take much damage to the hull to cause a major casualty. At the massive pressure of deep ocean depths, even minor damage can result in catastrophic flooding and failure. You don't need a submarine that can go to deep depths - all you need is a weapon that can go to deep depths. (MORE)
of course! they don't let any old schlub on a nuclear powered several billion dollar silent killer of the deep. all submariners (except the nuclear department, they get enough training as it is) go to sub school after boot camp where you will learn about the different departments of the boat and tra…in how to respond to different crises like flooding and fire. even after sub school you have to go through a qualification period to earn your "dolphins". you have to prove your knowledge about the different systems of the boat, the different departments and their jobs and responsibilities, and damage control. and there are constant drills. fire, flooding, ASW (anti-submarine warfare), reactor problems, missle drills...

The fastest known nuclear submarine to date was the Russian ALFA class (NATO reporting name) submarine. Its design featured a lead-bismuth cooled reactor, enabling the reactor to be much smaller and powerful, making the boat design more streamlined and capable of reaching higher speeds. Its top sust…ained submerged speed was 41-42 knots, with speed burst capabilities of between 43 and 45 knots. I could reach top speed within a minute. Most boats can only maintain between 12-15 knots on the surface - this is because modern submarine designs are to allow them to travel much faster underwater than on the surface. The average for most boats is between 25 - 35 knots submerged, depending on class and screw configuration. Modern submarines are designed to go much faster underwater than on the surface - typically, top speed on the surface is around 17 knots for most boats. (MORE)
They were only capable of going about 50-80 feet under. They were mostly used for spying.
It's cheaper (and safer) to buy a personal submarine rather than try to construct a working one. There are actually a lot of them on the market. The problem isn't getting a submarine to sink - that's the easy part. It's getting it to the surface again, along with viable air and propulsion that mo…st people run into problems with. Even if you forego any air and use SCUBA, there's still the issue of a system to surface and move through the water. (MORE)

Not in real life. The submarine Ulysses searched for Atlantis in Disney's 2001 animated film "Atlantis - The Lost Empire".
Women have been riding submarines for many decades; however, until the current U.S. Administration changed policy, women have not been allowed to serve aboard submarines for a variety of reasons, but in general since it's hazardous duty and has safety hazards that affect women more than men. Whil…e "social experiments" and the desire to serve aboard a submarine are great goals, in practice it's easy to want something when you don't know the risks involved, and the risks aren't publicly known since minimum clearance for anything regarding a modern submarine is Secret/NOFORN. Few submariners (myself included) ever get away from submarine duty without some health problem, be it lung related, mental, or cancer. The British Royal Navy's policy against women serving aboard submarines is specific, stating the radiation danger to a woman's fetus as the primary factor. Of course that's BS (radiation levels on board modern boats are less than you get from the sun) but the dangers to the female reproductive system from other chemical agents and radiation sources other than the reactor are very real. Of course that's not in the recruiting brochure when you're asked to volunteer. It remains to be seen if the policy shift will actually take effect - unlike the changes with gays and women aboard combat ships, flying combat missions, etc., submarine duty is strictly a volunteer force, and the Navy could wind up with a mass exodus of qualified sailors from the submarine force if they push the issue. Navy life in a submarine isn't like a regular ship, and the mental stresses are hard enough without any other distractions. One of the biggest opponents of women serving aboard boats is the wives of current submariners. Divorce rates for the submarine force typically run around 70%, given the long absences without any communication (unlike surface ships), and above average port destinations. The thought of any woman in such close quarters does not sit will with most wives. In the past, women who ride submarines temporarily are usually assigned quarters in the XO or CO's stateroom, which has its own head facility. The biggest problem is the complete lack of privacy, even in officer and senior enllsted areas. As of May 2011, Submarine Base Groton has received its first female candidates for submarine duty. However, they are female officers, and will be assigned to SSBN's and SSGN's due to the minimal impact on crew co-habitation. (MORE)
In most cases you won't - there isn't any visual warning, and unless thermal layers near the surface prevent the submarine's Sonar crew from hearing a close-aboard contact, a submarine already knows which surface contacts are around and is already tracking them while at Periscope Depth, which is the… normal procedure prior to a normal surfacing. As such, it will only surface when it is a safe enough distance from those contacts to avoid any problems, as submarines are visually difficult to spot in the water, even during the daylight on the surface. There are 2 methods of surfacing - a Low Pressure Blow, which uses an onboard high CFN blower while the boat is a Periscope Depth to draw air from the snorkel mast and force it slowly into the Main Ballast Tanks, and bringing it to the surface, or an Emergency Blow, which is only used in critical casualties where the boat needs to get to the surface as fast as possible. During an EB, high-pressure compressed air is dumped into the MBT's, and as the boat begins to rise, air expands in the tanks as sea pressure lessens, further increasing buoyancy. Once on the surface, the LPB, or if damaged, the Diesel Generator, are used to force any remaining water out of the MBT's. If you're lucky enough to spot a submarine periscope (and most won't before it surfaces, as boats won't surface if there's a surface vessel within a certain range for marine safety considerations), and see white foam and bubbles coming from the sides of the hull, it's a good indication that the boat is surfacing using the LPB. Usually though, submarines tend to surface in areas where there aren't any surface contacts near enough to visually see them. (MORE)
In the United States, when a nuclear submarine has "run out of"nuclear fuel for its reactor (this takes many years), the reactormay be opened, and the spent fuel sent for reprocessing at theNaval Reactors facility at the Idaho National Laboratory. Thereactor's core may then be refueled. This process… can take sometime, and handling the spent fuel is dangerous and requires complexprocedures to prevent contamination. If the submarine is to beoverhauled, or retired, the fuel is removed for reprocessing, andthe reactor compartment is cut out of the submarine, sealed, andmoved for disposal to the Department of Energy's Hanford NuclearReservation in Washington State, where they are kept in drystorage. The submarine may be welded back together, or the sectionsfloated, until a new compartment and reactor are installed, or thevessel is cut up for scrap. Low level radioactive waste may behandled in other ways. (MORE)
go south of mossdeep to route 127 and make sure your east of sootpolis and look for a dive spot then swim around underwater until you find a cave. enter it then resurface. Hope it helped
It depends on the size of the boat and the type of water it's in (saltwater is more buoyant than fresh), but in most cases the average time is less than a minute from popping the corks on the Main Ballast Tanks to the time the Sail clears the waterline. The pictures you see of today's modern submari…nes only show about the top 1/5 of the boat; the rest is underwater. Once the Main Ballast Tanks start flooding and all that water comes in, it doesn't take much time to get underwater. (MORE)
anywhere from 35 mph to 110 depending on the gear ratio and the horsepower and the max rpm of the engine
A submarine, theoretically, can go as long as the food for its sailors last. A submarine can make oxygen, distill water, remove CO2 and other pollutants, and provide almost anything needed to survive at sea and underwater for nearly an indefinite period of time. Modern nuclear-powered submarines' re…actors will last without refueling for the life of the submarine - about 20 years. In 1960, the nuclear-powered submarine USS Triton circumnavigated the globe submerged. (MORE)

Most submarines have propellers that spin, pushing them forward. A few smaller research submarines use a water jet for propulsion.
All submarine screw shafts have seals around the full length of the shaft hull penetration area to prevent water coming in. Shaft seals can be mechanical, hydraulic, etc., but regardless they serve the same purpose.
The larger tourist submarines have an operating depth of 100m (330'), smaller ones around 10m (33', or one atmosphere). It's important to keep in mind that while the deeper depths is modest for a submarine, the reality is that at depths below 100-200', low light visibility and the decrease in aqu…atic life can make it boring, unless someone is just there for the "ooh's and aah's" of being underwater without SCUBA gear.

Through an air and water tight door called a hatch. These hatches are typically thick, round and rounded metal to withstand the sea water pressure at depth.
Yes definitely. Maybe not military class submarines but there are many public submarine tours that take you under the water to see shipwrecks, sea life etc
The smaller, spherical shape of their pressure hulls allows for a lot more PSI at extreme depths.
Depending on what type of engine it is will tell you how fast it goes.
Depending on the size of the submarine and whether it is peace or wartime. . U-Boat. 27 -> 57 . Non Nuclear ~ 40 . Nuclear ~ 80 (more in wartime)
On military vessels, the bathroom is called "the head". It isusually a tiny room large enough for one person and only with atoilet and sink. The shower is a separate tiny cell.
Submarine - A ship designed to travel underwater used for exploration and warfare. Submarine - A sandwich that is shaped like the submarine ship, also known as a grinder or hoagie.
Submarines are built with a special design that allows them to be faster underwater. Submarines can be used during a war as a way to sneak up to enemy lines in the water, but still stay hidden.
Submarines can operate under water, but not under land. The US is anation on land, and submarines cannot operate under it.
Define "submarine" and "bottom of the sea". Submarines are designed for a particular pressure/depth. Thedesigners also incorporate a margin of error, so the actual depthat which the submarine would be crushed by external pressure("crush depth") is generally marginally greater than its "designdepth"…. Submarines normally operate at a fraction of their designdepth (this is called "test depth") under normal peacetimeconditions. Different navies use different fractions as the testdepth; the German navy specifies a test depth of half the designdepth, while the US navy uses 2/3 of design depth. If the sea floor depth at a particular point is less than the sub'stest depth, then they can approach it (though, for various reasons,actually touching it is nearly always a bad idea). The deepest known point in the ocean is the Challenger Deep in theMarianas Trench, at about 10,916 meters. Two human-manned vessels(one solo craft and one with two occupants) have gotten within afew meters of the bottom there, but both of them were technically"submersibles" rather than "submarines"; they had limited mobilityand basically existed to go primarily straight down (and,hopefully, back up) rather than cruise for long distanceshorizontally. Actual submarines generally have much lowerdesign depths. For example Virginia -class US nuclear attacksubmarines have a test depth of only about 240 meters (puttingtheir design depth at about 360 meters). (MORE)
