Re: Yes, they look beautiful
Yes you are stupid
Nice to see the standard of debate is so high.
that's assuming no other opposing forces once you have attained said velocity
And that's exactly the point. Drag is everything. All that energy in the tanks is there to overcome drag. Your KE figure is entirely irrelevant; it is somewhere around 0.1% of the energy required for the flight, which is why my initial post mentioned that it was irrelevant. Drag is everything - have I said that? Drag is everything. That's where al the energy goes, and that's why I mentioned the drag equation in my first post. You keep harping on about KE, and now even you seem to have realised that it is irrelevant.
hey shall we throw in drag per second then add gravitational downforce per second
Now you're just making stuff up. Look at the units of what you've just attempted to throw in the air, and it should be obvious even to you that that is nonsensical.
It's the opposing KE force applied to the equation.
No, it isn't. There is a square term in there - as there are many square terms in mathematics. But if it were related to the KE of the aircraft, it would have the mass of the aircraft in there as well. You might notice that it does not.
You are quoting total available fuel energy, try realising all that energy at once, you'll have might big fucking bang
And now you are confusing energy with power. I thought you were a chemist and thermodynamicist?
By the way what is the difference between velocity and speed, a very important concept ?
How is it relevant in this context? You're just throwing irrelevancies around now in the hope of having something stick. Your earlier posts were indicative ofd someone who'd not properly thought through what he was posting. Now you're just into nonsense territory.
WTF ? I've already done it for you as proof.
And yet you still haven't addressed how that energy is so much less than the energy required for flight. Even if we take your worst-case figure for an aircraft doing over 1000mph, you're still a rounding error in the energy required for flight. Yet you cling to this attitude that even 28GJ is somehow of any significance whatsoever to the flight; it simply isn't.
Now stop bullshitting you know what you are talking about.
Yeah, pot, kettle, ....
