Hey there(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Please excuse me if this is a bit basic, but it's just a quick question.

How would one calculate the vertical forces experienced upon a light aircraft upon landing, if I have both the sink rate of the aircraft and it's landing weight?

Appreciate any help, thanks a lot.
