## Homework Statement

An aircraft flies with its wings tilted, in order to fly in a horizontal circle of radius r. The aircraft has mass 4.00 x 10

^{4}Kg and has a constant speed of 250ms

^{-1}. with the aircraft flying in this way, two forces are acting on the plane, P [lift] and W [weight which is given as 3.92*10

^{5}N] . P is acting at 35 degrees to the vertical. calculate P

## Homework Equations

centripetal force=mass * velocity

^{2}/ radius

centripetal force= mass * angular speed

^{2}* radius

angular speed = theta / time

angular speed = velocity/ radius

angular speed = 2pi * frequency

centripetal acceleration = velocity

^{2}/ radius

centripetal acceleration = angular speed

^{2}* radius

Force = mass * acceleration

## The Attempt at a Solution

I cant do it. I swear we need more information. can someone enlighten me.
