The greatest altitude at which an aircraft can maintain level flight in a standard atmosphere and under specific condituions - is known as?
The absolute ceiling
Air pressure is the amount of force exerted on an object by the atmosphere. It is greatest at sea level. It is greatest in the exosphere, due to the fact that air pressure is greater as the altitude rises; the exosphere is the highest level within the atmosphere. Air pressure is greatest in the areas that are small and enclosed. This is because there is no way to escape.
Air density (mass per unit volume) increases as altitude decreases. Gravity pulls atmospheric particles around the Earth, but pressure is the greatest at the bottom surface of the Earth where millions of particles are stacked up in a column till the edge of the atmosphere. Towards the outer edge of the atmosphere, the air particles are being weighed down on less and the pressure decreases with higher altitude.
The gravitational force between the Earth and an airplane is greatest when the airplane is at the minimum possible altitude. Its effect on the airplane depends on how the gravitational force is related to the total system of forces on the aircraft, that is, what other forces are acting on it at the same time, whether it's climbing, diving, standing still on level ground, standing on sloped ground in a wind, etc.
Air Pressure has to do with the Weight of Air in the Atmosphere. Imagine that the Atmosphere is like the Ocean. The 'Deeper' you go the greater the Pressure because there is more Fluid Volume above you pushing down. In the Atmosphere the LOWER the Altitude the greater the Pressure. SEA LEVEL is an established STANDARD for Pressure measurements. But there are many areas on land below sea level and those areas have an even…
Heavy, clean, and slow VORTEX STRENGTH The strength of the vortex is governed by the weight, speed, and shape of the wing of the generating aircraft. The vortex characteristics of any given aircraft can also be changed by the extension of flaps or other wing configuration devices as well as by a change in speed. The greatest vortex strength occurs when the generating aircraft is heavy, clean, and slow.
On Earth, the intensity of cosmic rays increases with altitude until a maximum where the atmosphere ends; this reflects the atmosphere's shielding effect. Outside Earth cosmic rays intensity is greatest at their source or origin, which seems to be mostly outside the solar system. Although some uncertainty remains, they are believed to be created by supernovae explosions, and possibly by the relativistic jets of quasars or active galactic nuclei.
What factors in the atmosphere seem to have the greatest effect on the amount of radiation received by the sun?
clouds or atmosphere gasses 75 of the fraction from the atmosphere is greater effect on the amount of radiation received from the sun. The ozone layer seems to have the greatest effect on the amount of radition receved from the Sun. However, due to carbon dioxide emissions, the ozone layer is depleting gradually overtime.
