Unformatted text preview: before and after the fuel is jettisoned and is given in Example 13 as R = 59 800 N. After the fuel is jettisoned, W = 86 500 N – 2800 N = 83 700 N From Equation (1) above, the thrust after the fuel is jettisoned is T = R + W (sin ) = [(59 800 N) + (83 700 N)(sin 30.0°)] = 101 600 N From Equation (2), the lift after the fuel is jettisoned is L = W (cos ) = (83 700 N)(cos 30.0°) = 72 500 N a. The pilot must, therefore, reduce the thrust by 103 000 N – 101 600 N = 1400 N b. The pilot must reduce the lift by 74 900 N – 72 500 N = 2400 N ______________________________________________________________________________________ ______...
