As your plane speeds down the runway during takeoff, you decide to determine the acceleration of the plane. you take your yo-yo and note that when you suspend it, the string makes an angle of 22 degrees with the vertical. What is the acceleration of the plane?

• Physics -

g*tan(22°)

That is assuming one has a way to find the true vertical in an accelerating plane and which is possibly taking off. Most high-rises are not allowed near an airport.
