I need to learn how to calculate energy requirement to levitate a mass of 5 metric tons travelling at velocities up to 27km/s. The length of the mass is projected to be 20m long and elliptical in sectional shape. The height will be no more than 2.6m with a lateral width 1m wider than the height.
The power source will be onboard. With the answer to this question I can then proceed to design and build a prototype emissionless powerplant that will meet the needed output.
I have no clue what physics are involved with this nor the equations.
My specialist field is civil engineering which means I understand some mathematics but any answer you supply must please explain each step in detail to help me learn about the issues involved. If any use of alternating current is proposed, it impacts on my materials selection and economics with steel fibre reinforced concrete.
If any heat is a byproduct, I need to understand why, to engineer a solution to transmittung, transferring or absorbing it.
I did find a combination of equations on Wikipedia but I don't know how to apply them to find my solutions to these problems.Tesla unit
I am researching a design for a goods transit hypervelocity type system Magway UK using various frictionless methods and, I believe magnetic levitation may be an option in conjunction with centrifugal force.
Once I better understand the theory behind all this I may be able to write a program to automate calculations to mess with variables and plot theoretical OUTCOMES VS OBSERVATIONS. I have a Casio GII calculator and Excel 365 at my disposal only which means it will be BASIC.
