Question

To take off from the ground, an airplane must reach a sufficiently high speed. The velocity required for the takeoff, the takeoff velocity, depends on several factors, including the weight of the aircraft and the wind velocity.

Required:
a. A plane accelerates from rest at a constant rate of 5.00m/s^2 along a runway that is 1800m long. Assume that the plane reaches the required takeoff velocity at the end of the runway. What is the time tTO needed to take off?
b. What is the distance dfirst traveled by the plane in the first second of its run?
c. What is the distance dfirst traveled by the plane in the first second of its run?

(a)

67.1 s

(b) 2.5 m

(c) 2.5 m

Explanation:

initial speed, u = 0 m/s

final speed, v = 70 m/s

acceleration, a = 5 m/s2

distance, s = 1800 m

(a) Use third equation of motion

Let the time is t.

Use first equation of motion

v = u + at

134.2 = 0 + 5 t

t = 67.1 s

(b) Use second equation of motion

(c) Use second equation of motion
