Chapter 1 Example Problems
1. An airplane weighs 16,000 lbs. The local gravitational acceleration g is 32 fps2. What is the mass
of the airplane?
Use equation 1.1 and solve for the mass.
Given:
W= 16,000 lbs
g= 32 fps2
W = m can be rearranged to

When flying, airspeed is a vital component. Essentially, everything that happens in flight,
aerodynamically, happens due to airspeed. Other factors such as lift and drag are directly

Performance vs. Efficiency
There are so many positives to thrust producing engines, however, there is a dilemma that
comes with them as well. We will go through many aspects of this as well as explore into the
