Which layer of the atmospheric layer contains ozone layer and where planes fly?

The Ozone Layer. stratosphereThe region of the atmosphere above the troposphere. The stratosphere extends from about 10km to about 50km in altitude. Commercial airlines fly in the lower stratosphere.

What layer does jets fly in?

lower stratosphere

What is in the stratosphere layer?

The Stratosphere It contains much of the ozone in the atmosphere. The increase in temperature with height occurs because of absorption of ultraviolet (UV) radiation from the sun by this ozone. Temperatures in the stratosphere are highest over the summer pole, and lowest over the winter pole.

Why Aeroplanes and jets fly in the stratosphere?

The main reason airplanes fly in the stratosphere is because this is where the least amount of turbulence is found. In addition, because the stratosphere is very dry, there are fewer clouds in this layer, making for a much smoother ride overall.

Do planes fly in troposphere?

Most light aircraft and turboprop aircraft fly within the troposphere and this is where most of the water vapour and therefore cloud formation exists.

Can a plane fly over Mount Everest?

Airplanes often avoid air paths that take them over Mt Everest or the Pacific Ocean. This is because “the Himalayas have mountains higher than 20,000 feet, including Mt Everest standing at 29,035 feet. However, most commercial airplanes can fly at 30,000 feet.”

Why do airlines fly so high?

Why Do Commerical Aircraft Fly So High? The reason aeroplanes fly so high is due to improved fuel efficiency. A jet engine operates more efficiently at higher altitude where the air is much thinner, allowing an aircraft to travel faster whilst at the same time, burning less fuel.

How high can you fly without oxygen?

12,500 feet

How high can Flies Fly?

Basically, flies can fly in 50 degrees Fahrenheit or higher, anything lower than that is too cold. On a 70 degree day, flies can reach about 3000 feet in altitude, going higher will cause death (from the cold). If it’s hotter, say, 90 degrees, a fly could potentially reach 5000 feet.

Why do flies rub their hands together?

Rubbing Behavior Flies rub their limbs together to clean them. This may seem counterintuitive given these insects’ seemingly insatiable lust for filth and grime, but grooming is actually one of their primary activities.

Do flies only live for 24 hours?

If you were to ask the average person how long they think a fly lives, more likely than not they will tell you they only live about 24 hours. House flies and other larger flies that usually infest a house can live for days, maybe even months. Mayflies, however, usually only have a 24 hour lifespan.

Can you see fly poop?

Houseflies follow their “noses” to a likely food source (almost anything). In pretty short order, the food is metabolized, and they poop out the rest in what we usually call “fly specks.” Fly poop is tiny black or brown dots. You might also find amber-colored spots, but that’s excess SFS left over from the meal.

Why do flies go crazy before they die?

A housefly will likely die on its own from stress. The interior of a home can be disorienting and stressful to a housefly, says Dave. If you’ve ever seen a fly bouncing on a window trying to escape, that’s what will eventually cause its death.

What happens when you kill a fly?

When you decide to kill a fly, it will release a lot of pheromones that will in turn attract more flies. Farmers who understand the fly factor actually use it as a bait to attract other flies so that they can trap them.

Do flies sense death?

As sharks can sense the presence of a few drops of blood in a large amount of water, a fly can detect the presence of a dead body within few minutes after death and from a distance. “Flies will reach the body, lay their offspring and while the adult will fly away, maggots will feed on the body.

Do flies scream when you kill them?

Screaming is an evolutionary trait in animals with vocal chords that communicate via them to warn others of their species that danger is near. Most insects do not communicate in this way. No, they lack both vocal cords and lungs.

Should you kill a fly?

Inside or around food on the patio, kill them. They are not useful in the house nor in human or pet living areas and they can be dangerous to our health and our pets health. This should not be a moral issue for anyone.
