What happens if you jump inside a bullet train?
When you are inside or on top of a train, you are moving at he same speed as the train. So when you jump, you come down where you jumped. Inside the train, the air is also moving with the train. But outside it is not, so, when you are on top of a train, the wind will push you toward the rear of the train.
What happens when you jump on the roof of a moving train?
Air pressure. The air in the train is moving with the train, outside the train is moving relative to the air so if you are on top it feels like a strong wind that will will slow you down if you jump. The train wil not slow down so you will land in a different place on the roof.
Can trains break the sound barrier?
Maglev trains can reach exceptionally high speeds because there is no contact with the ground and, consequently, very little friction. The current absolute land speed record was set in 1997 by the rocket-powered Thrust SSC, which reached 763 mph, breaking the sound barrier.
Can you stand on top of a moving train?
Being on top of a train is the same as riding in a car. You are already moving the same speed as the train, so you should not be phased by the movement as long as the train does not brake or accelerate extremely abruptly. The thing that would affect you would be the speed of the air rushing by.
Why do I land in the same spot when I jump on a train?
When moving with the train, the speed of the train is your speed. You are in the same frame of inertia. When you jump in the train, you do not encounter air resistance, and you usually encounter little to no force and there is no change in your speed. That’s why you fall in the same place when you jump.
Can trains travel at the speed of sound?
It would operate inside a ‘low-pressure tube’ and, if development proves successful, could travel along at twice the speed of magnetic levitation trains – currently the fastest in the world capable of reaching 268mph. According to the Korea Times, the train will almost reach the speed of sound just over – 767mph.
What happens if you shoot a bullet off a moving train?
If you shoot the bullet off the back of the train, the bullet will still be moving away from you and the gun at 1,000 mph, but now the speed of the train will subtract from the speed of the bullet. Relative to the ground, the bullet will not be moving at all, and it will drop straight to the ground.
Can a bullet travel 300 km/h in the opposite direction?
First, even if the projectile can travel 300 km/h in the opposite direction (the exact same speed that you are traveling), it will need a bit of time to reach that speed. In short, when you pull the trigger, the bullet won’t immediately be traveling at 300km/h in the opposite direction (-B).
Why does a bullet always travel at the same speed?
This is a good question because it involves the concept of reference frames. The quick answer is that relative to you, the bullet will always travel at the same speed.
Can you jump inside of an accelerating train?
Inside of an accelerating train you would be standing inclining forward – to keep balance. As a result, your jump would be not vertical, but with the same angle, making the exact horizontal component necessary for landing to the same spot. Unless you intentionally jump backward.
