The chart in Figure 10-35 shows the runway distance required
under normal conditions and is useful as a quick reference
chart for the standard takeoff. The V speeds for the various
weights and conditions are also shown.

For other than normal takeoff conditions, such as with
engine anti-ice, anti-skid brakes inoperative, or extremes in
temperature or runway slope, the pilot should consult the
appropriate takeoff performance charts in the performance
section of the AFM.

There are other occasions of very high weight and
temperature where the runway requirement may be dictated
by the maximum brake kinetic energy limits that affect
the aircraft's ability to stop. Under these conditions, the
accelerate-stop distance may be greater than the accelerate go.
The procedure to bring performance back to a balanced
field takeoff condition is to limit the V1 speed so that it
does not exceed the maximum brake kinetic energy speed
(sometimes called VBE). This procedure also results in a
reduction in allowable takeoff weight.
