An airplane has a mass of 50,000 kg, a wing area of 300 m2, a maximum lift coefficient of 3.2, and a cruising drag coefficient of 0.03 at an altitude of 12,000 m. Determine (a) the takeoff speed at sea level, assuming it is 20 percent over the stall speed, and (b) the thrust that the engines must deliver for a cruising speed of 700 km/h.

PY 205 Week 3 Notes Chapter 4 and 5 Newton’s Laws 1. Velocities don’t change unless a net force acts upon it (qualitative) 2. The acceleration of a body is directly proportional to the net force acted on it (quantitative) a. Fnet = (mass)(acceleration) 3. Forces occur between two objects – if A exerts a force on B then B exerts a negative force on...
