The 747 has about a 17 to 1 glide ratio. If we figure a cruise altitude of 42,000 ft. (8 miles).
Then a 747 in cruise could glide 136 miles. Assuming that the landing area is at sea level.
Even if cruise alt is a bit lower, its reasonable to say a large commercial airliner at cruise altitude can glide somewhere around 100 miles.
Answer 2 Yes, it depends on the size of the aircraft but to give you anidea, a 747 will carry 50,000-60,000 gallons. Pilots usually thinkof fuel in pounds, not gallons. 50,000 gallons is about 300,000pounds. The fuel capacity varies even among different versions ofthe 747. This is about half of the maximum takeoff weight. withfull passenger load.
Answer: There is no such thing as "an 82 Mercedes". There are (and were) several different models made my Mercedes, so you will have to specify the model you are interested in. And then there are different tanks. The diesels tend to have a smaller tank than the petrol versions (on a C 200 at least), so you need to be quite specific.
Answer: The fuel capacity for a cruise ship all depends on the size of the ship.The big cruise lines such as Princess Cruises, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, Carnival, and Disney have vessels that range from as little as 590 feet to over 1,100 feet, and they can carry anywhere from 6,000 barrels of fuel oil to over 56,000 barrels (1 barrel = 42 gallons). The Queen Mary 2 for example is 1,132 feet long and can carry up to 56,655 bbls of fuel oil.It also depends on your definition of cruise ship. While the companies mentioned above have large cruise ships there are other companies that give short local cruises. For example the Blue & Gold Fleet, which gives cruises around San Francisco Bay, has vessels which are roughly 135 feet and can carry between 93 and 167 bbls of fuel oil.
This intercontinental long range plane burns 5 to 6 litres of fuel per second during take off until it reaches 3000 ft then 3 to 4 liters per second until it reaches cruising level at 35000 ft where it burns 1 to 2 liters of fuel per second. These values are approximate. In her fuel tanks she carries 80000 liters of fuel.
Answer: Fuel Capacity of B727-100 is 8,186 Gallons. A B727-200 is 9,806 Gallons.
With the 727-100, 12,000 lbs is burned in the first half hour of flight. In the next half hour 4,000lbs is used and thereafter for the entire second hour, another 7,000 lbs is used, i.e. 23,000 lbs in two hours, for the third hour a further 7,300 lbs is burned.
One US Gallon is equal to about 6.7lb so I leave you to figure the rest.
Early Boeing 727-200 aircraft still used the JT8D-7/9 engines with about the same consumption, but the Advanced version was certified to higher weights with more powerful JT8D-15/17 engines.
Later model 727-200 aircraft with the more gas guzzling -15 or -17 engines at a rough guess might burn 20-30% more than the figures mentioned above.
All airliners burn the most just after take off and in the climb.
Answer: While the actual fuel consumptions of the Boeing 737 depend onseveral factors there is an average that is widely used. It isestimated that the Boeing 737 uses about one gallon of fuel everysecond.
