2. ### Basic problem sorry for posting it.

So the answer is if there is ANY friction between the wheel and the surface it will not take off. Even the slightest. I think even ICE and water has some friction. But if there is zero friction it won't. I still would like to see a few more persons to take their position.

BTW what if we would change our wheels to scates and the surface would be ICE. In theory it is the same. But in reality I have hard time imagining it.

upss missed this post. Yes absolutely a, and b, I think is given by the problem although the problem was not created by me.
5. ### Basic problem sorry for posting it.

chroot, What I meant by the speed of the wheel and the surface: When the airplane takes of at under normal conditions (no backward moving surface)... the resistance created by the wheel is not significant. The airplane will take off after the rollout. Say that speed when the airplane takes...
6. ### Basic problem sorry for posting it.

So that, and the surface friction would be significant enough to stop the airplane? The next question would be how fast is the surface moving backwards at the moment when the airplane is already at full t/o power. It has to be faster than the t/o speed or even the maximum cruise speed or else...
7. ### Basic problem sorry for posting it.

The airplane is stationary at start, so is the surface and the wheel. Then we apply power. In case the plane will not move my problem is to understand what counters the effect of the jet engine or the propeller. Those move the air backwards even if the plane say would stay at the same...
8. ### Basic problem sorry for posting it.

Hi, We have been discussing this following problem to the death at a different forum. I figured I will ask the professionally oriented what they have to say about it. The problem: The airplane (jet or the other one) is on the special surface, which can run backwards - opposite the...
