Creating the data set:
























Using the data set:
Step 1.
Create a scatter plot comparing airspeed and lift. Consider the look of the plot and determine a regression equation that seems to best fit. State an opinion as to:
Step 2.
The amount of force it will take to lift the Boeing 737 off the
ground can be calculated using Net Force = Lift  Weight.
Create the third column of the calculator "spreadsheet" by
calculating the respective net force values. There is an easy way to
do thisstate (in writing) the method used to create this set of
values.
Step 3.
Turn off the "airspeed vs. lift" plot and graph. Then create a scatter plot comparing airspeed and net force. Consider the "airspeed vs. net force" plot. State an opinion on:
Step 4.
Turn off the "airspeed vs. net force" plot (and graph if created).
Turn on the "airspeed vs. lift" graph. Then enter an equation for the
total weight of the airplane and its passengers. Find the
intersection of these two graphs. What is the meaning of the
intersection?
Step 5.
Keep the graph of "airspeed vs. lift" and the graph of the total
weight turned on. Turn on the plot or graph of the "airspeed vs. net
force." Compare/contrast these graphs.
Step 6.
Summarize the information provided by the "airspeed vs. lift" and the "airspeed vs. net force" plots or graphs. Include the following:
Step 7.
Use the World Wide Web to access the Forces
on an Airplane slide. Compare and contrast the lift and the net
force needed to allow an aircraft to leave the ground. Describe the
factors that affect lift.
