Problem 41P

Problem 41P

If the airplane of Problem 1–42 weighs 1450 lbf, esti­mate the lift force produced by the airplane’s wings (in lbf and newtons) when flying at 55.0 m/s.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution to 41P

Step 1

We need to find the lift force produced by the wings of a airplane of weight 1450 lbf in newtons and in lbf.

We know that, for the airplane to be in flight, the lift force must balance the force due to gravity on the airplane. Thus the lift force must be equal to the weight of the airplane. We do not consider any other forces during the calculation.

Lift Force FL=1450 lbf
