### Can airliner jet glide without fuel?

to a certain degree yes but it may probably go into stall. A glide is when an aircraft or object travels horizontally while dropping vertically. If it doesn't glide, then it drops vertically---i.e. a rock. If it can travel horizontally the same distance as the distance it falls, this is referred to as a 1:1 (one-to-one) glide slope. Many aircraft can not do this and will drop faster than they fly forward.

### Is acceleration greater when the object is thrown vertically or horizontally?

Acceleration is dependent on the initial velocity of how fast the object is leaving the projectile. The vertical acceleration is greater when the object is falling than when the object reaches the peak in height. However, if the object is thrown horizontally and there is no parabola in its shape then there is not as great of an acceleration.

### How does gravity affect object that are moving horizontally?

The force of gravity is the same, whether the object doesn't move at all, whether it moves horizontally, vertically, diagonally, or whatever. The force is about 9.8 newton/kilogram.Therefore, if no other forces act on the object, it will accelerate downward at a rate of 9.8 meters/second squared - again, no matter how the object is moving at any given time. Under gravity (and assuming no other forces are significant - such as air resistance), an object that initially moves horizontally will have the tendency to move in a parabola.

### Can a force directed vertically on an object ever cancel a force directed horizontally?

No, never. They act perpendicularly, so they could never cancel. Only forces which act parallel and in the opposite direction can cancel.

### How are objects able to gain energy as well as use it?

An object gains energy when it is either heated or pushed. If pushed vertically, it gains gravitational potential energy. If pushed horizontally, it gains kinetic energy.

### Why does the speed dcreses when an object is thrown vertically up?

whyh does the sped decreases when an object is thrown vertically up

### Why don't you do any work when you carry an object art a constant velocity?

Well, if you do that for a while, you could certainly raise a sweat, and you would say that you've done a lot of work. But in the strict Physics definition of "work", none of it has been done to the object you carried. The strict definition is: Force acting through a distance. Referring to the object you carry: -- You don't move it vertically. You just hold it there against the force of gravity, but your vertical force doesn't move it up or down. So no work is done vertically. -- Horizontally, the speed is constant. No force is required to maintain a constant speed, so no work is done horizontally either.

### Result of the combination of an objects forward inertia and the downward pull of gravity on the object?

If there is no forces acting, it will continue horizontally at constant velocity, while uniformly accelerating vertically down , the effect of this would trace a parabolic curve

### What is vertically symmetrical?

to feflect an object so the reflected object is the right way up

### How far is the furthest man made object from earth?

The furthest man-made object from Earth is space probe Voyager 1,launched 1977.It is,as of May 9,2011,about 17,300,000,000km from the Sun.

### What happen when an object thrown horizontally?

Your question is incomplete. It sounds like you are asking how the object falls. Aside from air resistance, the only force acting on it is the vertical component of gravity. Therefore, the object will fly a distance x = v (2d/g)1/2 where v is the horizontal velocity, d is the distance from the ground, and g is the acceleration of gravity.
