An airplane has a mass of 3.1 x 10^4 kg and takes off under the influence of a constant net force of 3.7 x 10^4 N. What is the net force that acts on the plane's 78-kg pilot?

Solution Preview

According to Newton's 2nd Law:
Force(F) = Mass(m) * Acceleration(a)

Now, let us first calculate the acceleration on the airplane. Its mass is 3.1*10^4 kg and it ...

Solution Summary

With good explanations and calculations, the problem is solved.

A model airplane of mass 0.830 kg flies in a horizontal circle at the end of a 54.0 m control wire, with a speed of 35.0 m/s. Compute the tension in the wire if it makes a constant angle of 20.0° with the horizontal. The forces exerted on the airplane are the pull of the control wire, the gravitational force, and aerodynamic li

Airplane flight recorders must be able to survive catastrophic crashes. Therefore, they are typically encased in crash-resistant steel or titanium boxes that are subjected to rigorous testing. One of the test is an impact shock test, in which the box must survive being thrown at high speeds against a barrier. A 41-kg box is thro

Airplane flight recorders must be able to survive catastrophic crashes. They typically are encased in crash-resistant steel boxes. One of the tests is an impact shock test, in which the box must survive being thrown at high speeds against a barrier. A 41 kg box is thrown at a speed of 220 m/s and is brought to a halt in a collis

Due to friction with the air, an airplane has acquired a net charge of 1.70 x 10^-5 C. The plane moves with a speed of 2.80 x 10^2 m/s at an angle with respect to the earth's magnetic field, the magnitude of which is 5.00 x 10^-5 T. The magnetic force on the airplane has a magnitude of 2.30 x 10^-7 N. What is the angle?

What is the net upward force on an airplane wing of area 17.9 m^2 if the speed of air flow is 295 m/s across the top of the wing and 280 m/s across the bottom.

A 102-gram airplane is attached to a string with a length of 1.0 meters. if it flies in a circle in which the string is declined at angle (theta) of 39.8 degrees below the horizontal at what speed is the plane flying?

An applied force of 6 Newtons acts in the direction of motion of a block of mass 9 Kg, with the mass being pulled across the floor against a frictional force of .6 Newtons. Assume that the block moved the distance 'y' in this process.

* How much work does the netforce do on the object

A 62 kg person, standing on a diving board, dives straight down into the water. Just before striking the water, her speed is 5.50 m/s. At a time of 1.65 s after entering the water, her speed is reduced to 1.10 m/s. What is the average netforce (magnitude and direction) thatacts on her when she is in the water?
