1. No known species of reindeer can fly. But there
300,000 species of living organisms yet to be classified, however
most of these are insects and micro-organisms, but this does not exclude
full flying reindeer, which only saw
2. The earth has 2 billion. Children (those who are under 18). But Santa comes
only to Catholics, so let's exclude from the list of Muslims, Jews,
Buddhists and Hare Krishnas, t. E. The remaining 15% of the total - 378mln.
according to statistics. On average, according to the same statistics, family
accounts for 3, 5 children - is 91, 8 million. houses. And in each allegedly
have at least one child who is well behaved.
3. Assuming that Santa travels east to west, it
working day lasts 31 hours, thanks to time zones and the rotation of the Earth. Receive
discharges a 822, 6 in the second visit. This means that on each visit to the Catholic
eskoy family with a good child, Santa has 1/1000 of a second. During this time he
a. deer park,
b. get out of the sleigh,
c. jump into the chimney,
d. cram into socks gifts,
e. distribute the rest under the tree,
f. eat food, which he left
g. get out of the chimney,
h. climb into the sleigh and go to the next house.
1) Suppose the 91, 8 million. Stops are evenly distributed
surface of the earth, as we know, is not true, but
perfect for our calculations. So now we have 1, 15 km between
every house, a common way of about 113, 25 million. km, excluding
stops that we usually do at least once every 31 hours to eat and
t. d. This means that Santa sled move with speed 970 km / sec in this
3000 times the speed of sound. For comparison, the fastest mechanism
created by man: the space probe Ulysses, dragged at a speed of 40 km /
s, and the usual, not migratory deer runs at a speed of 25 km / h and then, if
it strongly scare.
2) The payload on the sleigh adds another interesting element. Assume that
Every child receives a gift default constructor lego (about 1
kg), the sleigh is 321 300 tons of cargo, not counting Santa, who is usually
described as overweight. On land, conventional reindeer can pull no more than 150
kg. Even if flying deer can move 10 times, we will not
we can complete the task by using eight or even nine
deer. We need 214,200 reindeer. This increases the total weight of the sled
up to 353 430 tons.
3) 353 000 tonnes, 970 flying at speeds of km / sec, under enormous
air resistance, because of which the team warms up as space
Ship entering the earth's atmosphere. The first two reindeer will absorb
14 QUINTILLION 3 joules of energy. Each. Per second. In short, they will burn
almost instantaneously, as well as deer them, thus will
be deafening explosions. The entire reindeer team will turn to ashes for
4, 26 thousandths of a second. Meanwhile, at the Santo will act
Centrifugal forces at 17 500 06 greater than the force of gravity. Santa weighing
120 kg (which is ridiculously small for this type of well-fed) is pinned to
the back of his sleigh by 2,000,000. kg.
