### Airplanes need a longer runway at high altitudes to develop the required lift Please explain?

The airplane develops lift through the process of moving a mass
of air over the wings at a sufficient rate ... the more mass per
second, the more lift. The density of air is less at high
altitudes, meaning any given volume has less mass than the same
volume would have at lower altitude. In order to blow the required
amount of mass (per second) over the wings and develop the required
lift, more speed is required, hence a longer runway over which to
accelerate.

### What is the power rating of a machine to lift a crate in 5 seconds?

That really depends on the weight of the crate. Also, on how
high you want to lift it. Calculate the energy required to lift the
crate with the formula for gravitational potential energy:
PE = mgh (mass x gravity x height)
Then divide this by the 5 seconds to get the minimum power
required. (The actual power is somewhat larger, for various reasons
- the initial acceleration required, and losses due to
friction.)

### How much force to lift 50 kilograms onto a shelf 3 meters high?

The height is irrelevant. The energy required depends on the
height; the force does not. The weight of an object, and therefore
the force required to lift it, is mass x gravity - about 500
Newtons.

### How does mass affect speed?

== F=m*a Force = mass * speed a = F/m For the same Force F
the speed is big for small mass
the speed is small for big mass == The more mass something has,
the more force is required to accelerate it to a given speed. The
less mass something has, the less the force required to accelerate
it to a given speed. Simple and easy. For a given amount of force,
the less the mass it is applied to, the higher the speed that will
result. The more the mass to which it is applied, the lower the
speed that will result. It's just that simple.

###### Asked in Cars & Vehicles, Physics

### Difference between car speed and truck speed?

The only difference is the energy required to obtain the same
speed. The extra weigh of a truck means that more energy is
required to move the greater mass as Force = Mass x acceleration (F
= MA). Thus if more mass is being accelerated more force is
required.
Speed = distance travel / time taken to travel. (S = D/T)
Thus speed would be the same for a car and a truck.

###### Asked in Speed of Light

### How much energy would be required to accelerate an object to the speed of light?

No amount of energy can accelerate a material object to the
speed of light (at which energy can nevertheless travel). This is
because an effect of increased velocity is an apparent increase in
mass -- as the object approached the speed of light, its mass would
approach infinite, so an infinite amount of energy would be
required to accelerate the mass.
However, it is theoretically possible to attain a reasonable
fraction of the speed of light, in the range from 0.1c to
0.9c, given a suitable source of energy such as mass
annihilation.

###### Asked in Physics

### What is the impact of faster velocity and heavier mass on the collision of object?

The collision of an object that hits a mass which can halt that
object, what primarily matters is the speed only. The power of the
impact would be same, no matter is the weight and the size of the
mass, since it is heavy enough to halt the object that is moving at
a very high speed. But the degree of destruction of the object
moving at a high speed is proportional to the weight, speed and
mass of that object that is running towards the mass.
