Homework Help: Airplane banking

  1. Nov 20, 2005 #1
    A small airplane makes a turn of 300m radius, while flying at 50ms^-1. Determine the angle at which it banks with the horizontal plane.

    Anyone any idea on how to do this?
    Please I really need help.

    Just balance the forces: gravity, centrifugal and wing lift

    doesn't work... Have no lift values...or mass even, so no weight and centripetal. Nm thanks anyway.
