(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

An airplane has a mass of 1.60 x 10^4kg and each wing has an area of 40.0m^2.

During level flight, the pressure on the lower wing surface is 7.00x10^4Pa. Determine

the pressure on the upper wing surface?

2. Relevant equations

Newtons third law

3. The attempt at a solution

As I read through about airplane and wing I see that the force on the wing

has an equal and opposite reaction force. Also the curvature of the wing is a factor.

This problem states no curvature? The wings are assumed parellel to plane.

Is this simply 7.00x10^4 for the top? from the information given or am I missing

something

Thanks,

Kevin
