How far does the earth travel in a year?

about 584 million miles

How fast is our galaxy moving through space?

1.3 million miles per hour

How fast is the Milky Way moving per second?

130 miles per second

Can you be still in space?

Our universe works similarly, but we’re embedded on a three-dimensional space instead of a two-dimensional one. There is no ‘still’ that is not relative to some other object. So yes, you can be still with respect to one object, but you’ll be moving with respect to every other object.

Can you feel gforce in space?

g-force is the result of acceleration of a space craft. If the ship were traveling at a constant velocity, the astronaut would experience no force at all, regardless of how fast the ship is going. Astronauts can feel g-force at any speed, so long as the ship is accelerating.

Can a spaceship stop in space?

Space ships do not stop when they run out of fuel. While outer space does contain gas, dust, light, fields, and microscopic particles, they are in too low of a concentration to have much effect on spaceships. As a result, there is essentially zero friction in space to slow down moving objects.

What happens if there is no drag?

If there is no motion, there is no drag. It makes no difference whether the object moves through a static fluid or whether the fluid moves past a static solid object. Drag is a force and is therefore a vector quantity having both a magnitude and a direction.

Does drag slow you down?

An airplane has drag when it flies through the air. Drag makes the plane go slower. When you run, your legs have to move fast to make you run forward. The engine in airplanes makes planes go forward.

What happens if thrust becomes less then drag?

As long as the thrust is less than the drag, the aircraft travels more and more slowly until its speed is insufficient to support it in the air. Likewise, if the rpm of the engine is increased, thrust becomes greater than drag, and the speed of the aircraft increases.

Does Weight Affect drag?

The heavier the weight, the faster the speed of the object (due to gravity), which will lead to the object colliding into more air molecules per second and therefore making the magnitude of the drag force on the object slightly bigger.

What is the most aerodynamic shape?


Does drag increase with speed?

Drag increases with speed (v). An object that is stationary with respect to the fluid will certainly not experience any drag force. Start moving and a resistive force will arise. Get moving faster and surely the resistive force will be greater.

What are the 4 principles of flight?

The four forces are lift, thrust, drag, and weight. As a Frisbee flies through the air, lift holds it up.

What are the 7 principles of flight?

Principles of Flying. (1) Lift, (2) Gravity force or Weight, (3) Thrust, and (4) Drag.

Which fuel is used in aircraft?

Aviation kerosene, also known as QAV-1, is the fuel used by airplanes and helicopters equipped with turbine engines, such as pure jet, turboprops, or turbofans.

What are the 6 motions of flight?

An airplane rotates in bank, pitch, and yaw while also moving horizontally, vertically, and laterally. The four fundamentals (straight-and-level flight, turns, climbs, and descents) are the principle maneuvers that control the airplane through the six motions of flight.
