1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known dat

If a quadrotor of mass $1kg$ flying along the positive $x$-axis at a speed of $4m.s^{-1}$, why would a wind gust providing an effective force of $5N$ along the $y$-axis would give the drone an acceleration of $20m.s^{-2}$?

Furthermore about

**moment**.

if this gust provided a moment of $1 NewtonMeter$,

- why would the drone, which would have vertical thrust of $9.8N$

(along the $z$-direction) not be able to hover?

- Why would it gain acceleration on the $y-axis$?

## Homework Equations

Linear momentum is a vector quantity, possessing a direction as well as a magnitude:

$$\mathbf {p} =m\mathbf {v}$$

## The Attempt at a Solution

[/B]

I understand this is the $x$ speed times the effective force of the gust but not what is the physical explanation about it.
