How far from the ground is an aeroplane when flying?
It varies upon aircraft type, private or commercial flight, and where the aircraft is going and on what heading. Above 3000 ft in the UK and 10,000 ft in America aircraft will fly on what is called a flight level which works off a pressure measurement of 1013.2hps keeping a 500ft gap between other aircraft on different headings (the quadrontal rule or semicircular rule if very high). The small aircraft you see flying about will tend to be about 1000-3000 ft and helicopters tend to fly on 1000 ft. Large passenger aircraft may go to 55000 feet or higher. Small private aircraft typically fly in the lower altitudes, say 3000 to 17000 feet and high performance private aircraft 18000 to 25000 feet. Commercial aircraft fly in the 35000 to 40000 foot range, and small business jets can operate in the 45000 to 50000 feet. These are broad generalities as operating altitudes are selected on a day to day basis depending on various factors such as winds, weather, time requirements, etc. Many military aircraft have much higher capabilities depending on the specific mission.
It is air friction. An aeroplane flying into a headwind will use up much more fuel than an aeroplane flying with a tailwind. Air friction means that a feather would take much longer to reach the ground than a lead weight dropped from the same height. Yet, if the feather and the lead weight were to be dropped in a vacuum (not subjected to air resistance) they would both reach the ground at the same…
If someone is being selfish or spiteful you would say: "you are being low." If something is low from the ground, e.g a roof, you would say: "That roof is low." or if an aeroplane were flying close to the ground you would say: "That areoplane is flying very low." I hope this helped, sorry if the examples were too confusing or rubbish.
The noun 'aeroplane' (or airplane) is a common noun, a general word for any a powered flying vehicle with fixed wings; a word for any aeroplane of any kind. A proper noun is the name of a specific person, place, or thing. Examples of proper nouns for the common noun 'aeroplane' are a Boeing 737 or an Airbus A380.
Will the speed of an aeroplane be same which is flying at different altitudes and have same mach number 2?
no mach no is defined as ratio of local speed of aeroplane to speed of sound. As the altitude increases the True speed of aeroplane increases and speed of sound decreases because of reduction of ambient temperature Hence the value of their ratio should increase at an increasing rate with increase in altitude. Keeping the Mach No constant say, 2 means reduction of speed to a large extent so as to maintain constant Mach No…
-To achieve maximum range in level flight, the aircraft must be flown at a speed which produces minimum drag. This however will only be true in no wind. -When flying into a headwind max range will be reduced and when flying in a tailwind max range will be increased. -Single engine flight effects range of the aeroplane because it increases the total drag on the aeroplane so the range is decreased.
very very far. Flying cars actually exist, but everyone would need a pilots license to fly one... and can you imagine even a fender bender in the air? People can't even follow the road laws on the ground, can you imagine what it would be like in the air, over peoples homes? One $%#@ tossing a beer bottle out of a window could kill a person on the ground
There are what is called flying squirrels, but not in the sense that they have wings and feathers, like birds. They just have an extra flap of skin by their chest and arms, that when spread and they jump from tree to tree, it gives them an image of flying; its more like gliding. They can't go very far and they can't take off from the ground by flying
