barit1:



No. THP has to do with aircraft performance. When it's on a testbed, you wouldn't be analyzing THP. The engine would be producing thrust and you could compute how efficient the engine...

oggers:

We had never talked about a wind before and I had assumed that there would be no wind. Therefore, with no wind, TAS is the same as GS.

You hold onto it as if you 'won' or something. If...

I do not care what you're doing with the elevator and rudder. If the forces are balanced, the aircraft WILL NOT turn. End of story.

When did I say that equation wasn't correct? I don't think you realize that the equation in that form is very basic. The terms THP, SHP and p.e. all expand to include a heck of a lot of variables....

You're going to have to actually listen to what I say. What is the equation for THP? You'll find that TAS is in that equation.

Yup! You got it. Thrust is a force. It's the same as me pushing really hard against the side of a big box. If the box doesn't move, I haven't done any work. I have sure used a lot of energy though!...

I completely agree. It might be good to specify that the "power (lift)" you mention is BHP(SHP) as we've been talking about THP as well.

Yes, the slope of the line = thrust. What's your point? The reason the slope equals thrust is because of the equation: Power = thrust x speed. The slope of any line is rise over run. And that equals...
