## Weight of Glider Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Weight = Lift force*cos(Glide angle)+Drag Force*sin(Glide angle)
W = FL*cos(a)+FD*sin(a)
This formula uses 2 Functions, 4 Variables
Functions Used
sin - Trigonometric sine function, sin(Angle)
cos - Trigonometric cosine function, cos(Angle)
Variables Used
Weight - (Measured in Kilogram) - Weight is a body's relative mass or the quantity of matter contained by it.
Lift force - (Measured in Newton) - The lift force, lifting force or simply lift is the sum of all the forces on a body that force it to move perpendicular to the direction of flow.
Glide angle - (Measured in Radian) - Glide angle is the angle between the plane of the horizon and the path of a glider or airplane.
Drag Force - (Measured in Newton) - Drag Force is the resisting force experienced by an object moving through a fluid.
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Lift force: 10 Newton --> 10 Newton No Conversion Required
Glide angle: 30 Degree --> 0.5235987755982 Radian (Check conversion here)
Drag Force: 80 Newton --> 80 Newton No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
W = FL*cos(a)+FD*sin(a) --> 10*cos(0.5235987755982)+80*sin(0.5235987755982)
Evaluating ... ...
W = 48.6602540378444
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
48.6602540378444 Kilogram --> No Conversion Required
FINAL ANSWER
48.6602540378444 Kilogram <-- Weight
