Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Crow on Tuesday, April 2, 2013 at 9:00am.

A plane flies horizontally at constant ground speed v=720km/h. The pilot is informed by an air traffic controller that he must immediately change his direction of flight while keeping the same altitude. The pilot performs a turning maneuver by rolling the plane to a banked position. Then she increases the airspeed in Δv to keep the plane at constant altitude. As a result, the plane describes an arc of radius R=8km. Find the increase in airspeed Δv in km/h. Assume that the lift force is proportional to the square of the speed and that it is always perpendicular to the plane of the wings.
