i am both unbloodied and unbowed.
when you go into a meeting you are terrified.....
scared of what other people will think of you...
scared of your career and the boss holding your future hostage...
so you go with the flow and herd....
you kiss the bosses backside and lap up his jokes...and so you dont speak up.
You know, I think it's attitudes like this that have caused the decrease in teachers. You try and tell someone something new for their own benefit
and get this in return.
you are wrong and so are ignoring facts and the laws of physics.
Technically if I was actually wrong, wouldn't that be the other way around?
look at racing cars around a race track at high speed.
if a car does does a sudden 90 degree LEFT what happens.?
if the tyre friction fails and it skids then EVEN THOUGH THE CAR 'S NOSE HAS TURNED LEFTwards THE CARS CONTINUES TO GO IN THE ORIGINAL DIRECTION DUE
TO NEWTON'S LAWS.
And from time to time, meets an incompressible barrier (much like supersonic wind) and gets promptly turned from a precise machine worth thousands and
thousands of dollars into flying shrapnel. Doesn't that sound kind of familiar?
WHY CANT U ADMIT THIS AND ADMIT YOU ARE WRONG?
Because the slogan of the site is "Deny Ignorance", which is in the imperative form of speech. This makes it a command, which also means that
you're supposed to do it. Hence, I do it.
same with planes ..it does a left turn but despite the noSe POINTING LEFT IT CONTINUES TO GO IN THE ORIGINAL DIRECTION AND IT IS EXPERINCING FULL
SIDEWAYS FORCE FROM THE AIR INCLUDING THE PYLONS AND MISSILES....WHICH DONT GET RIPPED OF.....
Have you noticed that the aircaft actually changes direction while turning (hence the use of the turning manoeuvre)? And in this form, it doesn't
ever end up 90 degrees sideways. With your pylon rotated, the missile IS 90 degrees into the wind. And it will be a lot more wind than the effect
The aircraft does tend to skid a bit in the air at low speeds. Say, 150-300 knots. But it only skids a little bit. Maybe 15-20 degrees max, but
that's an estimate. And that's low speed. A missile launch would be a full 90 degrees sideways with a Mach 1+ speed. There's a bit of a difference,
wouldn't you say?
the plane is going at high speed sideways...have you go that thru your skull?
For the umpteenth time, no, it isn't. Go on YouTube, find a video of a plane turning. It's never sideways in a turn.
you have been defeated again....
By Mr. Plum, in the LIbrary, with a candle stick, maybe. But not by Esecallum on ATS with the imaginary physics.
missiles dont tumble when hit with a crosswind...
they cannot TUMBLE AS THE POINTED SIDE PRESENTS LEAST AIR RESISTANCE/FRICTION.
Have you noticed that if you launch a missile to the side it's not presenting the pointed side into the wind? You know, if I get back on my own
computer, I'll do a diagram to illustrate this.
look at a javlin..... when thrown it hits the ARBITRARY target ...
but suppose you have a crosswind now...
does the javelin tumble? no
no no nooooo....AND NO...!!!
Because the cross wind is probably at 10-15 knots for a bit of nastiness, not Mach 1. Again with the tiny little differences in scenarios.
because the javlin SIMPLY DRIFTS OF THE TARGET.SIDEWAYS.
YOU HAVE BEEN SOUNDLY BEATEN AGAIN...
I'd like to see links showing proof of that. Can you get any credible sources?
