During an engine experiment of a plane, the plane stands horizontally, when one wheel is located on a special weighting apparatus. When the engine is active, the apparatus shows a pressure force of 8.5 [kN]; and when the engine is inactive, it shows pressure force of 4.5 [kN]. The increasing of the force due to the action of the engine is caused by the ation of the reactive momentum, that wants to turns the entire plane at the opposite drection to the direction of the propllelor.
(The question I'm struggling is this:)
Draw a sketch of the forces acting on the wheeks when the engine is off and when the engine is on.
(I solved the 1st question to thism finding the the reactive momentum is 12 if L is 3 [m])

Attached... is this right?
