A jetliner can fly 5.57 hours on a full load of fuel. Without any wind it flies at a speed of 2.43 x 102 m/s. The plane is to make a round-trip by heading due west for a certain distance, turning around, and then heading due east for the return trip. During the entire flight, ...

While taking a plane flight to a meeting, a physicist decides to do a mental calculation of how much fuel the plane would consume in the absence of friction, assuming its engines have an efficiency of 22.0% and the mass of the plane is 200,000 kg. Each gallon of jet fuel ...
