Question 2: An airplane is gliding in a direction 10 degrees downward from the horizontal. Three forces act upon it: its weight of 10,000N; the lift, perpendicular to the direction of motion; and the drag of air friction, opposite to the direction of motion. Assume the plane moves with constant speed and compute the value of the lift.

Question 3: A 40kg block is place on a level table and a rope is fastened to it which passes horizontally to a pulley at the edge of the table and thence extends downward to a 1.5kg block suspended from the other end. Neglecting friction, calculate the acceleration and direction of the moving blocks.

The first thing to do for each of them is to draw a diagram showing all the forces.

Ok. After that what do I do?

I am trying to figure out what equations to use!

There are no equations as such, you will just have a bunch of forces and angles - the most you will have to do is work out what the component of the forces are in each direction. All you will need is sin and/or cos.
