Unformatted text preview: Introduction to Aerospace Engineering ASE 102 Homework # 2 Spring Semester 2008 Note: In this assignment the problems are based on the performance and the design of real airplanes. l.) The picture below shows the planform ofa Grumman F—l4 “Tomcat” naval fighter aircraft. It has a variable geometry in that the wings can be extended or swept back (the dotted lines on the drawing). With wings extended, the airplane has a top speed of 400 miles per hour. Assume that the aircraft is flying straight and level at top speed at an altitude of 10,000 feet with wings extended and that its total weight is 60,000 lbs. The pilot decides to sweep the wings. How fast does the airplane fly ifthe pilot wants to maintain his altitude? Assume that the wing thickness is 1.5 feet and use the drawing below to estimate the aspect ratios of the extended and the swept back wings. (10) i ' g . l l l l l i. E l l ASE 102 Homework # 2 Continued 2.) A Boeing 747—20013 cargo aircraft based in Seattle is sent to deliver a load of cargo to LaGuardia Airport in New York which is about 4800 kilometers away and then return to the Sea—Tac Airport. The dry mass of the aircraft is 168,000 kgm. and it can carry a payload of 101,000 kgm. The total mass ofthe aircraft fully loaded with fuel is 378,000 kgm. The difference between the total mass of the aircraft and the sum of the dry mass plus the cargo mass is the mass ofthe fuel the aircraft can carry when the fuel tank is full. The lift to drag ratio ofthe aircraft is 20 and the value of the constant in the Breguet equation is k/eg = 1000 km. a.) Can the airplane make the trip to New York without stopping to reﬁiel ifthe fuel tank is full at the start of the trip? (5) b.) If so, how much fuel is left in the tank upon arriving at LaGuardia. To answer this question, you have to include the fuel not burned on the trip to New York as part of the cargo going to New York. (5) c.) Can the airplane make it back to Seattle with the amount of fuel left in the fuel tank? (5) ’ Nippon Cargo Airlines Boeing 747-200F Freightero! Nippon Cargo Ami: Date Due: February 27, 2008 ...

### What students are saying

• 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.
