----An airplane has an effective wing surface area of 15.9m^2 that is generating the lift force. In level flight the air speed over the top of the wings is 61.5m/s, while the air speed beneath the wings is 52.2m/s. What is the weight of the plane?----(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I tried looking through my textbook and lecture notes, but nothing is really discussed about how to solve a problem like this. Would anyone be able to help me figure this out? Thanks.
