OK, I have a question regarding this homework that I have to complete about power and airspeed. I have a beech bonanza v-tailed aircraft and I need to calculate rate of climb in ft/min with a True airspeed of 110 knots. (110 knots = 185.7 ft/s) I am using R/C= (excess power)/weight My problem is that when I found the power required for level cruise at the same speed as above, I got a huge number because I did PR=Thrust required x Velocity (200.3 lbs x 185.7ft/s) This going to give me a negative number for my excess power. The power plant is capable of 345 hp at sea level. What am I doing wrong?
