1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A pendulum has a length L = 1.13m. It hangs straight down in a jet plane about to take off as shown by the dotted line in the figure. The jet then accelerates uniformly, and while the plane is accelerating, the equilibrium position of the pendulum shifts to the position shown by the solid line, with D = 0.370m. Calculate the magnitude of the plane's acceleration. 2. Relevant equations Lsinθ = D a = gsinθ 3. The attempt at a solution sinθ = 0.37/1.13 θ = 19.11 deg 9.8sin(19.11) = 3.209 I thought that is the correct way to solve it, but I am not getting the correct answer, and I cannot think of another way to go about it.
