How many mechanics classes did you take to make you this kind of an expert?
I don’t dare wear this shirt in public, because I have no idea what your guys are talking about.
Just want the Monty Python reference.
Enough aeronautical engineering classes to know that a bird cannot create thrust. Unless it has a JATO bottle attached.
Aeronautical engineering and they didn’t teach dimensional analysis?
Birds do not create thrust
I didn’t say they did. I said thrust is a force and even if it’s mislabeled it is still a force in that diagram, not power.
Thrust is incorrect. Good day, sir. Good day.
You are indeed brave, sir knight, but the fight is mine!
My neighbor is an award winning NASA engineer. I would ask him but I don’t think he would entertain a question about what’s the correct term to use for this t-shirt.
I’ll be sure to let everyone know if I work up the courage to ask him.
LOL I have no idea what the force for the climb angle c might be called here. Darnwootin might be correct that it shouldn’t be labeled as “thrust” but I have no idea what you call forward bird force.
If I were dong it I just would probably call it Fc and be done. Don’t really care about the force labels. I did notice the rho’s (density) look too much like a “p” in some of the equations though.
