A plane has a loaded mass of 115,000 kg. It's shown travelling north at a speed of 825 km/h and banking at an angle of θ = 18° in level flight.
Find the magnitude of the vertical component of the lift vector.

  1. Damon

    If it is in level flight the vertical component of lift is equal to the weight
    = m g =115,000 * 9.81 Newtons
