Homework Help: Angular velocity with aircraft (equation help?)

  1. Dec 3, 2009 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A 2100lb airplane requires a power of 100 HP at the propeller to climb at an angle of 20 degrees to the horizontal at a constant speed. how much altitude could it gain in 10 minutes?

    2. Relevant equations

    that's actually what I need help on...i left my book at school and I dont have the equations on hand. Can someone point me in the right direction here firstly please? This doesnt seem that hard but I havent a clue what equations i should be using.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    N/A (for now, sorry)
