1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data An airplane of mass 1.2 x 10^4 kg tows a glider of mass 0.6 x 10^4 kg. The airplane propellers provide a net forward thrust of 3.6 x 10^4. What is the gliders acceleration. 2. Relevant equations F(net) = ma 3. The attempt at a solution After drawing FBD's, F(net) = ma F = (m1 + m2)a a = F/(m1 + m2) = (3.6 x 10^4 N)/(1.2 x 10^4 kg + 0.6 x 10^4 kg) =2 m/s^2 This seems way too easy, can anybody please help me?
