    Francesca, who likes physics experiments, dangles her watch from a thin piece of string while the jetliner she is in takes off from Dulles Airport . She notices that the string makes an angle of 25° with respect to the vertical while the aircraft accelerates for takeoff, which takes about 13.5 seconds. Estimate the takeoff speed of the aircraft.
