What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow *?
Taylor et al. show that as a rule of thumb, the speed of a flying animal is roughly 3 times frequency times amplitude (U ≈ 3fA). to estimate that the airspeed velocity of an unladen European Swallow is 10 meters per second.
What is the African Swallow quote from Monty Python?
Guard 1: Oh yeah. An African swallow, maybe — but not a European swallow, that’s my point. Guard 2: Oh yeah, I agree with that. King Arthur: [exasperated] Will you ask your master if he wants to join my court at Camelot?!
What is the average velocity of a swallow carrying a coconut?
A group of coconuts is called a group of coconuts. Bonus fact: The airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow is roughly 20.1 miles per hour.
What is the fastest swallow?
The Barn Swallow may be the fastest swallow. It’s been clocked flying 46 m.p.h. The Barn Swallow is the only North American swallow with a deeply forked tail.
What is the unladen weight of a swallow?
According to research from the Avian Demography Unit of the University of Capetown, the European swallow has an average length of 12.2 cm and an average mass of about 20 grams.
How far do swallows fly?
Swallows migrate during daylight, flying quite low and covering about 320 km (200 miles) each day.
What does the French guy say in Monty Python?
French: Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. French: You don’t frighten us, English pig dogs. Go and boil your bottoms, you sons of a silly person. I blow my nose at you, so-called “Arthur King,” you and all your silly English K-nig-hts.
What are the three questions asked in Monty Python?
King Arthur was the fourth- the first two questions were the same as for Lancelot, Robin and Galahad, but the third was: “What is the airspeed velocity of an unladen swallow?” Arthur asked which kind of swallow: African or European, and when the bridgekeeper answered “I don’t know that”, he was thrown into the gorge
Who is the best Monty Python member?
ERIC IDLE was the nicest of the six members of Monty Python. He was born in the North of England… well when I say the nicest he wasn’t absolutely the nicest. Michael Palin is generally recognized as being the nicest. Actually Terry Jones is pretty nice too and certainly he’s very nice at parties.
Can two swallows carry a coconut?
Two swallows carrying one coconut would each have to flap their wings at 111.8 beats/second, assuming weight and constant flight velocity are proportional and that the line holding the coconut was weightless.
What are the monks saying in Monty Python?
In several scenes the monks chant in Latin: “Pie Jesu domine, dona eis requiem”. The translation of this is: “Merciful Lord Jesus, grant them rest.” It’s part of the standard Latin funeral rite.
Are you suggesting coconuts?
Arthur: The swallow may fly south with the sun, or the house maarten or the plummer may seek warmer climes in winter, but these are not strangers to our land! Guard: Are you suggesting that coconuts migrate? Guard: (indcredulous) What, a swallow, carrying a coconut? Arthur: It could grip it by the husk!
Which bird is fastest?
A ‘stooping’ peregrine is undoubtedly the fastest flying bird, reaching speeds of up 200 mph. However, the stoop is gravity-assisted – more of a controlled fall – and is generally not considered as level flight (where they reach 40 mph).
Which bird can fly the highest?
Birds by flight height
|Alpine chough||Pyrrhocorax graculus||8,000 metres (26,500 feet)|
|Bearded vulture||Gypaetus barbatus||7,300 metres (24,000 feet).|
|Andean condor||Vultur gryphus||6,500 metres (21,300 feet)|
|Mallard||Anas platyrhynchos||6,400 metres (21,000 feet)|
Which is faster Falcon or Eagle?
While not as large or strong as an eagle, the falcon is the fastest animal alive, able to reach speeds of more than 200 miles per hour. Falcons, while not nearly as big or strong, are the world’s fastest animal. A peregrine falcon can fly upward of 240 miles per hour.
