Jul 17 2016 · Some people just assume that the conveyor belt will move the plane back The job of the conveyor belt is in both cases mostly limited to rotating the wheels Try it at home You do not need a plane and a conveyor belt Just get a medium size tube Or a bottle And place it on a smooth surface a large sheet of packing paper is easily available
A plane is on a conveyor belt which when turned on moves the plane backwards at a speed equal to the normal takeoff speed of the plane If the pilot uses the normal amount of throttle and other controls can the plane take off Question 2 A plane is on a conveyor belt which when turned on moves the plane backwards
DetailNow imagine that the plane is sitting on a really long conveyor belt Both the belt and the plane are stationary and the jet engines are off Now imagine that the conveyor belt starts moving at 800 mph Seeing that the plane’s engines are off the plane gets dragged backward at 800 mph by the belt
DetailJan 31 2008 · So the conveyor belt will only stop the plane from gaining takeoff velocity if it creates enough friction to counteract the forward thrust of the engines or propellor
DetailThe plane might take off but it has to break friction between the wheels and the conveyor belt It will require more thrust than normal since the wheels are normally freewheeling The wheels functionally turn into rubber blocks because they can never outrun the conveyor belt
Detailassuming the conveyor belt can always match the speed it will rise up to infinity wheels would melt from friction and plane would crash No If the plane is sitting on the conveyer belt its speed is zero Once it begins moving it is possible If the plan is sitting its speed is zero meaning it cannot take off
DetailApr 09 2018 · So yes a plane can take off on a belt It won’t change the takeoff distance Taking off in front of a fan however would present a much more interesting problem
DetailThe rotation of their tires results from this forward movement and has no bearing on the behavior of a plane during takeoff I claim the only difference between a regular plane and one on a conveyor belt is that the conveyor belt planes wheels will spin twice as fast during takeoff
DetailJan 30 2008 · MythBusters Episode 97 Airplane on a Conveyor Belt An airplane cannot take off from a runway which is moving backwards like a treadmill at a speed equal to its normal ground speed during takeoff First some smallscale tests were performed with a model airplane on a treadmill and the plane was able to take off
DetailThe answer given is correct the wheels will spin freely twice as fast as the plane’s ground speed Vb 2Vw but the plane would take off the same as if it was on a normal runway There would be a negligible amount of friction in the wheel’s bearings that might slow the plane’s acceleration slightly
DetailJan 31 2008 · Last night the Discovery show Mythbusters settled a longstanding debate whether an airplane on a conveyor belt running in the opposite direction as the plane can take off
DetailFrom the opposite direction the same speed conveyor belt the same speed can be understood as the speed of the conveyor belt and the speed of the aircraft tires are the same the aircraft can be maintained at a stable point In fact this can indeed take off but it can neither increase the takeoff distance nor reduce the takeoff distance
DetailA riddle was proposed on the Neal Boortz show today If an airplane is on a large conveyor belt and is trying to take off by exerting the thrust needed to move it forward at 100 knots and the conveyor belt starts moving backwards at 100 knots will the plane be able to take off or will it just sit stationary relative to the ground with the backwards speed of the conveyor belt counteracting
DetailYes it can take off Once the planes engines are providing thrust against the air it will move forward and all the belt can do is make the freewheeling wheels spin faster As a thought
DetailFeb 11 2007 · A plane is on a conveyer belt which is turning in the opposite direction to way the plane is pointing The belt can turn at any speed and we have indestructible tyres and bearings on the plane could the conveyer belt stop the plane from taking off I read this on another forum first and have bee
DetailI like this question It made me think If there were a way I’d vote the Question up along with almost all the answers bc they made me think harder So my answer The plane will not take off if it remains in full contact with the conveyor be

DetailThe actual question the poster wanted to ask and the one asked and answered by Mythbusters is this an airplane is on a conveyor belt runway that can run backwards The forward speed of the airplane is monitored and the conveyor belt is run backwards at that forward speed as the airplane tries to take off
DetailThe question goes like this “Imagine a 747 sitting on a large conveyor belt as long and as wide as a runway The conveyor belt is designed to exactly match the speed of the wheels but run in
DetailIf the plane has a takeoff speed of 40 mph and is in a 40 mph headwind it doesnt even need to move at all with respect to the ground Plane on a Conveyer Belt Now lets do it
DetailA plane is standing on a large treadmill or conveyor belt The plane moves in one direction while the conveyor moves in the opposite direction This conveyor has a control system that tracks the plane speed and tunes the speed of the conveyor to be exactly the same but in the opposite direction Can the plane take off

DetailPlane on a Conveyor Belt Myth A plane on a conveyor belt matching its takeoff speed in reverse cant take off This is a Internet meme popularized by sites like original problem states that the conveyor belt matches the forward speed of the plane in reverse but for this particular mythbusting they tested the conveyor belt moving at the planes takeoff speed

DetailDec 11 2006 · The premise is flawed–the airplane will take off because it will move relative to the conveyer belt On a treadmill you can walk and remain in place relative to the treadmill because your feet provide the force necessary to move you forward and that force is canceled out by the treadmill
DetailSep 25 2014 · My initial thought was that the plane wouldnt be able to take off If the conveyor is moving in the opposite direction as the plane at the same speed then the plane wouldnt move relative to the ground as if youre running on a treadmill youre not actually changing position relative to the room youre in and therefore there would not be any more air flow over the wings than if it was
