  1. Oct 5, 2009 #1
    A fire helicopter carries a 625 kg empty water bucket at the end of a cable 18.3 m long. As the aircraft flies back from a fire at a constant speed of 35.4 m/s, the cable makes an angle of 36.3° with respect to the vertical. Calculate the force of air resistance on the bucket.
