DC 10 Jet liner is flying straight and level at 21,000 feet at a constant speed of 600 miles/hour. The engines are delivering a combined thrust of 100,000 lbs. What must the drag force of air be?
a. _____________
The aircraft with its passangers and cargo weighs 500,000 lbs. What is the total lift force acting upward on the plane to keep it in the air?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ghere , let the drag force by air is Fd as the plane is moving with constant velocity net force on the plane will be zero Fd  100000 = 0 Fd = 100,000 lbf the drag force is 100,000 lbf b) as the plane is at constant height Flift  W = 0 Flift  500,000 = 0 Flift = 500,000 lbf the total lift force acting upward on the plane to keep it in the air is 500,000 lbf
