A/C with higher thrust to weight ratio can accelerate more quickly.

A. True

B. False

I had been asked this question by my college director while I was bunking the class.

This question is from Thrust Weight Ratio-1 in section Thrust-Weight Ratio and Wing Loading of Aircraft Design

Correct choice is A. True

The explanation: Thrust to weight ratio is an important parameter. This ratio can affect the performance of an aircraft. Higher thrust to weight ratio represents more thrust for given weight. Hence, more quick acceleration, more maximum speed etc. can be achieved through higher values of thrust to weight ratio.
