Force components Definition and 13 Discussions

The Joint Force Air Component Headquarters (JFACHQ) is the United Kingdom's deployable air command and control unit. The JFACHQ is run by the Royal Air Force with representation from the other services.The JFACHQ has members from the operations and operations support branches of the RAF to both plan and execute the air war as well as support the deployed air components from A1 to A9.
The unit is based at RAF High Wycombe. It can deploy worldwide at short notice to run an air campaign.
The constituent parts of the JFAC are broken down according to the Continental staff system:

A1 – PANDA (Personnel and administration)
A2 – RAF Intelligence
A3 – Air operations (both plans and current operations)
A4 – Air logistics
A5 – Air strategy and contingency planning
A6 – Air CIS (Communication and Information Systems)
A7 – Air training
A8 – Finance and budgets
A9 – POLAD (Political advice) and LEGAD (Legal adviser)

    I What is the tangential component? Taylor p.347

    I do not understand why the tan component for a gravity affected by the centrifugal force: g = Ω^2 * R * sinθ * cosθ So I tried to draw this: using a "big" X-shaped axis where the / component goes along the main gravity direction while \ points normal to / this direction. Then the centrifugal...

    Extending an aircraft landing gear that has gotten stuck

    Imagine an aircraft of which the its wing is connected to its landing gear by means of a hinge (joint), and then the gear suddenly gets stuck midway. If, subsequently, the aircraft makes a turn around its longitudinal axis (see picture), it seems to hold true that then the angle between the...

    Rotational Torque/Force Problem (rod around hinge)

    Homework Statement A Rod of Mass "M" is attached to a two-way hinge on the floor. It is being pulled by a spring (extension spring, so force is pulling the rod to the right, causing it to move clockwise). The hinge is frictionless. the rod has a mass of 5kg evenly distributed the pulling...

    Maximizing x-component of force

    A charge Q is placed at a distance a = 3m and a charge q is placed at a distance b For what value(s) of b is the x-component of the force maximized? I know to maximize the force we need to maximize F_Qq = k Qq b/(3^2 + b^2)^{3/2}. To do this we need to set the first derivative to zero and...
