An airplane is flying with a constant speed of 275 m/s along a horizontal circle with a radius of 1.23 x 104 m. If the lift force of the air on the wings is perpendicular to the wings, at what angle, relative to the horizontal, should the wings be banked?

  • Physics -

    centripetal force: mv^2/r
    gravity force: mg

    angle banked: arctan v^2/rg
