Solution Summary

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

Solution Preview

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 ...
