Let's assume that the aircraft is 1000kg and it is flying in a air density of 1.225kg/m^3 at the speed of sound in air. Just how much energy does it require per second to maintain flying at this ...
If an electric car were to drive without having to stop, would the range be greatly affected by the speed at which the vehicle is moving?
Of course aerodynamics factors into this question, and the faster you are moving the more air you have to push out of your way, the more energy you use. But would the difference be only a small ...
If a stone is launched upward, of which is subject to gravity and air resistance, which of the following will have a greater kinetic energy? The stone at a point on its way up, or the stone at the ...
