conveyor belt plane

The case of the plane and conveyor belt - kottke.org

If you want to make a conveyor belt make a plane fly, remove the plane's wheels, and reverse the speed of the conveyor belt and allow it to move the plane forward. The plane will fly in the same manner that your hand makes a paper airplane fly.

Plane on a conveyor belt - explained / debunked • C-Aviation

 · Common mistakes It's not a car! A plane is not a car! The car accelerates when the wheels rotate on the ground. It uses friction to its advantage, but if you place it on the conveyor belt – it will need to turn its wheels much faster than normally to move forward.

Plane vs. Conveyer Belt: Hell Yeah the Plane Takes Off ...

 · So the conveyor belt will only stop the plane from gaining takeoff velocity if it creates enough friction to counteract the forward thrust of the engines (or propellor).

plane on a conveyor belt? | Yahoo Answers

 · The plane will not stay on the conveyor belt. The power of the plane comes from the jet engines or the propellors, not the wheels. The conveyor belt, no matter how fast it is going, will have no effect on the motion of the plane. The plane will move forward because it is pushing air, not because the wheels are making it move.

Plane on a Conveyor Belt. Myth: A plane on a conveyor belt, matching its takeoff speed in reverse, can't take off. This is a Internet meme popularized by sites like kottke.org.The original problem states that the conveyor belt matches the forward speed of the plane in reverse, but for this particular mythbusting they tested the conveyor belt moving at the plane's takeoff speed.

Would an airplane take off if it were on a conveyor belt ...

Of course it would take off. A plane gets no thrust at all from its wheels (unlike a car). The wheels are there to allow it to move easily over the ground and to hold it up. The plane would take off completely normally, with the difference that th...

The Airplane-Treadmill Conundrum - The New York Times

 · "Imagine a plane is sitting on a massive conveyor belt, as wide and as long as a runway. The conveyer belt is designed to exactly match the speed of the wheels, moving in the opposite direction. Can the plane take off? "I say no, because the plane will not move relative the the ground and air, and thus, very little air will flow over the wings.

 · If the plane does not move then the conveyor belt also does not move as it has to move in the opposite direction to that of the wheels, no wheel movement no conveyor movement. OR, eventually the conveyor belt will reach the speed of light and can go no faster, the aircraft being stationary will then accelerate and take off normally.

My Thoughts on the Changing World: airplane on a conveyor belt

 · But the weight of the plane on the conveyor belt remains the same. No air moves across the wings, so the plane does not lift and cannot take off. If the conveyor belt reaches 200 or 300 or 500 miles per hour, the plane will still be in the same spot. All the engines are doing is preventing the the airplane from moving backwards.

Can a 747 take off from a conveyor belt runway?

 · Yes, the faster the wheels turn, the faster the conveyor belt goes. But the wheels don't have to turn for the plane to move (as I said in response to 2). The conveyor belt does not have some property which prevents something from skidding along it, just from preventing any forward motion due to wheels turning on it.
