NAME_________________________________ CLASS____________________ DATE____________
A Boeing 747400 domestic airplane is soaring the friendly skies (shown below). Use data from the Boeing 747 Wikipedia Website (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_747) to complete Table 1. Estimate values for data you are unable to locate in a reasonable amount of time. You should be able to find the length of the airplane (for the reference distances requested), the mass of the engine, and the fuel capacity. The distances in Table 1 should be measured from a reference line that starts at the nose (front) of the 747. Use the BACK key to return to this page.
Problem 1 will guide you in the calculation to find the mass of the fuel.
All problems are expressed in metric units.
































Fuel capacity = Volume of fuel = ______________
to calculate the mass of the fuel. (Hint: You must convert from liters to milliliters.)
Mass of fuel = ______________
Record this value for the mass of the fuel in Table 1.
(Hint: Remember, F = ma_{g} = W. The acceleration due to gravity, a_{g }, is 9.8 m/s^{2}.)
































[Hint: The number n is the number of quantities being added together.]
n = _________
i = _________________________
