so good.




how is this that complicated though? the plane is not going to take off. the conveyor will push it backwards with the same force that the wheels push it forward, and the plane will stay stationary relative to the ground. and LMAO to the person who thought the propellors were the source of the air that blows over the wings. AWESOME. i got a 1 on the ap C physics test, so maybe I am a physics idiot. but that was for lack of effort not intellegince.

this is the problem with these threads.. you get people saying

"how is this that complicated? the ...." and then they just go on to list a ton of incorrect assumptions.

I can't believe this thread got this long.

I'm going on my gut instinct upon my first reading of the OP.

There is thrust, but no air flow being generated, therefore no lift. Therefore, no, it ain't taking off.

ok, is this because the wheels have no friction to push forward or something? or is the answer somewhere back in the thread. i just assumed that the force to the left would be equal to the force to the right and it would be stationary and not lift off.

I assumed the conveyor would be just like sticking the plane on a dynamometer and the plane would never be able to move forward. I was wrong. What you're describing is more like a Harrier or frictionless runway.

Or maybe the conveyor ramps up to infinite speed and the universe collapses?
