A 4600 kg helicopter accelerated upward at 5 m/s^2. What lift force is exerted by the air on the propellers?

--Would the downward force of gravity play a part in the solution?

  • Physics -

    The lift force on the propeller blades (F) is what keeps the helicopeter aloft and provides vertical acceleration.
    F - Mg = Ma
