    A plane heading due North makes a level turn with a speed of 100 m/s. The angle of the bank is 15 degrees. Determine:

    (a) Radius of the circular path
    (b) Cetripetal acceleration
    (c) Lift force
    (d) Direction of velocity after 30 seconds (Weight of the plane is 19600 Newtons)

    Let the lift be L which acts perpendicular to the plane's wings

    mg= 19600 N
    m= 1997.96 kg as g=9.81 m/s
    v= 100 m/s

    L Cos 15 ...

    Solution Summary

    This solution calculates radius of the circular path, cetripetal acceleration, lift force and direction of velocity after 30 seconds.
