A jet aircraft is climbing at an angle of 43Â° 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 (Â° 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 43Â° = 232.9 N

Vertical Component of this Force = 318.5 Sin 43Â° = 217.2 N
