    curve fitting of real time flight position data

    Hi All, I have got some real time position data of a flight. I need to get a curve that best fits these data. How do I go about? Please help me! Thanks in advance, Srini

    Angle of Flight

    An airplane of mass 1300 kg has an engine failure when flying with an airspeed of 131 km/h at an altitude of 2900 m on a calm day. It then glides at a constant glide angle (which is the direction of flight below the horizontal) towards a safe landing at this constant speed of 131 km/h...

    Flight

    An airplane flying at a speed of 360 mi/hr flies from a point A in the direction 137 degrees for 30 minutes and then flies in the direction 227 degrees for 45 minutes. Approximate, to the nearest mile, the distance from the airplane to A. I dont know how to draw it..., So im ultimately confused

    Flight tickets

    An airplane collects a total of $5390 for tickets from the 80 passengers on an airflight. Each child passenget pays $25 for their flight ticket. There are 20 children on the flight. Each adult passenger either buys a standard ticket for $90 or a thrifty ticket for $60, for the flight. How...

    Projectile Flight

    Okay so I have this problem and am not sure where to start. Can anyone help?: An arrow shot verticaly into the air from ground level with a cross bow reaches a maximum height of 484 feet after 5.5 seconds of flight. Let the quadratic function d(t) represent the distance above ground in feet t...

    Flight of an Aeroplane problem

    Hi, I would be really grateful to anyone who can help me with this problem... An aeroplane flies at a constant speed of 800km per hour in a straight line from (-100, -200) to (300, 1000). (positions are given with ref to Cartesian coordinate system whose x- and y- axes point due East and...

    angle of flight

    I took off from an airport at an angle of 18° (nearest degree). At a horizontal distance of 1000m (3sf) away from where I take off there is a range of hills 300m (nearest 10m) high. If I maintain an angle of 18° show weather I will clear the range. Please show how you answer this.

    Dynamics - Curvature in flight

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data A projectile is fired at an angle of 30 degrees above the horizontal with a velocity V0 of 460 m/s. Determine the radius of the curvature of the trajectory at the position of the particle 10 seconds after firing. 2. Relevant...

    Probability that a flight is over-booked

    An airline has 300 seats available on a flight to Australia. It is known from experience that on average only 99% of those who have booked seats actually arrive to the flight, the remaining 1% being called "no-shows". The airline therefore sells more than 300 seats. If more than 300 passengers...

    probability for over booked pasangers on a flight.

    Convoy Airlines has recently instituted a policy of booking 400 passengers for a flight on an airplane that only has a capacity of 350. Recent studies show that only 75% of passengers booked for a particular flight actually arrive for the flight. What is the probability that if Convoy Airlines...

    Flight distance

    Two people live 20 km from eachother. They start cycling towards eachother with a speed of 10 km/h. A fly starts from one of them and flies to the other person and then back to the first person. It has an average speed of 15 km/h. It continues to do this until the two people meet. How far will...
