4. What is the smallest angle in degrees between the weight and thrust forces?

(a) 0o (b) 90o (c) 180o (d) 270o (e) 360o

5. When an airplane (or any object) is moving at a constant speed, the forces acting on the airplane must be

(a) unbalanced, which means that the total force is not zero

(b) balanced, which means that the total force is zero

A fighter jet is flying at 37,000 feet with a constant speed of 1,310 km/h. The jet has a weight of 110,000 N and its engines provide a thrust of 106,752 N (using afterburners).

7. What is the jet's mass? [Hint: Use F = mag = W, where ag = 9.8 m/s2.]

(a) 520,120 kg (b) 11,224.49 kg (c) 3,527 kg (d) 614,853 kg (e) 215 kg

8. How much lift force is being applied to the jet?

(a) 512,128 N (b) 5,634 N (c) 110,000 N (d) 9,935 N (e) 106,752 N

9. If the jet engines are creating a thrust of 106,752 N, what is the drag force applied to the jet?

(a) 512,128 N (b) 5,634 N (c) 110,000 N (d) 9,935 N (e) 106,752 N
