**MathMate**, Sunday, June 13, 2010 at 10:28amThrust required to keep the helicopter stationary

= weight of helicopter

= mg

To find the vertical (upwards) acceleration, we use the formula:

S=ut+(1/2)at²

where

S = distance = 60m

u = initial velocity = 0

t = time = 10 s

a=2(S-ut)/t²

=2(60-0)/10²

=1.2 m s^{-2}

Total thrust

= 5 kg ( 9.8 + 1.2 ) m s^{-2}

= 55 N
