Unformatted text preview: Hey class, I got serious about doing your homework tonight, and I realized that I may have unintentionally misled some of you in discussion this morning. Let me correct myself. There absolutely is something tricky about this homework: HORSEPOWER. There are some pretty epic unit conversions you have to do to get even workable answers out of these equations, and as repayment for incorrectly stating that it was all straightforward, I've decided to help you through some of them. I provide this guide as a crash course into the physical application of the Breguet Equations. You should know what to expect for each problem after reading this. A quick aside about my notation: if you see a variable followed by units in brackets, that means those are the units to use for that variable. 1 Problem 1: Jet Range Equation This one is fairly straightforward, and I say that having actually solved the problem this time. I swear....
