    A jet aircraft is climbing at an angle of 43° above the horizontal and is also accelerating at 4.9 m/s2. What is the total force that the cockpit seat exerts on the 65 kg pilot?
    Magnitude (N) / Direction (° above the direction of motion of the plane)

    SOLUTION This solution is FREE courtesy of BrainMass!

    mass= 65 Kg
    acceleration = 4.9 m/s2
    Force = mass x acceleration

    Therefore total force =65 x 4.9 = 318.5 N

    Horizontal Component of this Force = 318 .5 Cos 43° = 232.9 N
    Vertical Component of this Force = 318.5 Sin 43° = 217.2 N
