A frequently quoted rule of thumb in aircraft design is that wings should produce about 1000 N of lift per square meter of wing. (The fact that a wing has a top and bottom surface does not double its area.) (a) At takeoff, an aircraft travels at 58.1 m/s, which is the airspeed just below the wing. Given the sea level density of air to be 1.29 kg/m³, how fast must it move in m/s over the upper surface to create the ideal lift? Type your answer...
