STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Gross Weight = Drag Force*(Lift Coefficient/Drag Coefficient)
W0 = FD*(CL/CD)
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Gross Weight - (Measured in Kilogram) - The Gross Weight of the airplane is the weight with full fuel and payload.
Drag Force - (Measured in Newton) - Drag Force is the resisting force experienced by an object moving through a fluid.
Lift Coefficient - The Lift Coefficient is a dimensionless coefficient that relates the lift generated by a lifting body to the fluid density around the body, the fluid velocity and an associated reference area.
Drag Coefficient - Drag Coefficient is a dimensionless quantity that is used to quantify the drag or resistance of an object in a fluid environment, such as air or water.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Drag Force: 80 Newton --> 80 Newton No Conversion Required
Lift Coefficient: 1.1 --> No Conversion Required
Drag Coefficient: 30 --> No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
W0 = FD*(CL/CD) --> 80*(1.1/30)
Evaluating ... ...
W0 = 2.93333333333333
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
2.93333333333333 Kilogram --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
2.93333333333333 Kilogram <-- Gross Weight
