Homework Consider a Boeing 767-300ER. Calculate the velocity in knots (nautical miles per hour) for a) maximum endurance and b) maximum range at 1) 10,000 ft and 2) 36,000 ft. Solution For a turbojet aircraft, the velocity at maximum endurance is V me = bracketleftbigg 4 π eA ρ 2 o σ 2 ( W / S ) 2 ( f / S ) bracketrightbigg 1 / 4 For the Boeing 767-300ER, A = 7 . 9, e = 0 . 7, W = 387 , 000 lbf, S = 3084 ft 2 , b = 156 . 1 ft and f = 127 . 5 ft 2 . Thus V me = 243 . 3 knots (Mach 0.38) at 10,000 ft

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
