a kite weighs 2.50 lb and has an area of 8 square-ft. The tension in the kite is 6.6 lb when the string makes an angle of 45degrees with the horizontal. For a wind of 20 mph, assume an angle of 8 degrees with the horizontal. Consider the kite essentially flat plate
I don't see a question here.
You must have left something out.
It seems strange that a wind would be 8 degrees from horizontal. Is that up or down from horizontal?
