CRUISE LIFT VEHICLE

Share with:


A vehicle cruises at a speed of 3 km/s at an altitude of 25 km. It has a mass of 100,000 kg, and it has a lifting surface area of 300  . Take the radius of the Earth to be 6400 km, and the value of ‘g’ to be 9.8 ms-1 . The lift to drag ratio is 5.
Both answers should be given in N.


How much lift must it generate?
How much thrust must the propulsion system generate?
