Unlike a ship, an airplane does not use its rudder to turn. It turns by banking its wings: The lift force , perpendicular to the wings, has horizontal component, which provides the centripetal acceleration for the turn, and a vertical component, which supports the plane’s weight. (The rudder counteracts yaw and thus it keeps the plane pointed in the direction it is moving.) The famous spy plane, the SR71 Blackbird, flying at 4,800 km/h,has a turning radius of 290. Km. Find its banking angle.
