How far, under an acceleration of 4.6 metres per second, would your 'speaker cone' travel in, say, 12 hours of daylight? Apply the appropriate
s = at^2/2
and neglecting air resistance and other frictional forces, the distance travelled by the cone would be...
...wait for it...
four million, two hundred and ninety-two thousand, three hundred and fifty-two kilometres
...or roughly 107 and a quarter times round the Earth. I guess the service crews would have to stay on their toes to keep up with it.
Of course, its terminal velocity at the end of twelve hours would be a scorching 198,720 metres per second, or roughly 715,400 mph.
In reality, though (let us not forget), air resistance, friction and the fact that it has to be confined next to a powerful magnet
mean that it
will not move at all.
Thanks for the generous conferment of manufacturing rights, but I don't really see this idea of yours working. I'm sorry my earlier post gave you a
