# Does the design of a paper airplane effect the distance an airplane will travel?

I have been told that there is no such thing as a dumb question... Well, I think you have just proved that theory wrong!

### How long will it take for an airplane that leaves one half hourlater than an airplane flying at rate of five hundred miles per hour when the first airplane flying six hundred miles per hour?

I don't think your question is worded exactly right. It sounds like you are saying Airplane A departs at a speed of 500 m/hr. An hour later, Airplane B departs at a speed of 600 m/hr. When will Airplane B catch up to Airplane A. The question for this is D = R * T D- distance travelled R- rate or speed T- Time To solve this problem, you have to realize that when Airplane…

### How does an airplane get off the ground?

There is a concept of lift when aircraft is built. The wing of an airplane takes a shape commonly referred to as an airfoil, that is curved downward on the top, but is mostly flat on the bottom. When an airplane speeds down the run way, the air is "split" by the wind. Air that travels above the wing is fast (since it has a longer distance to travel due to the curve) and is…

### The distance from the Sun to Earth is ninety-three million miles. How many days does it take to pass this distance?

It depends on your speed. A ray of light travels the distance in about eight and a half minutes. The distance can be represented as 149,637,000 kilometers. A car going at 90 kilometers/hour will travel the distance in 69277 days (about 190 years). An airplane going at 800 kilometers/hour will travel the distance in only 7794 days (21.4 years).
