So, my question (Finally)...does a jet engine push an aeromobile or pull it ?
Think about this one ,how does a rocket in space move forward.It cant be pushing as their is nothing to push against.
Neither. If you sit on a chair with wheels with a bag of cement and throw it your chair will move in the opposite direction. Newtons 3rd law. "To every action force there is an equal, but opposite, reaction"To push you need something to push against and the air around us does not provide enough resistance for the thrust of the engine to push against and produce motion.In other words a jet engine dosent move a plane because its pulling its self forward as it sucks air in and its not moving forward because its thrust is pushing against the air behind its because its simply throwing mass out of the back of the engine causing the plane to move in the opposite direction due to newtons 3rd law
