foot change in altitude in one minute?

.
In a power off glide at 78 knots, the drag is 200 pounds. In a 2450
pound aircraft, what is the rate of descent?

5.
If 500 pounds of thrust results in 200 knots TAS, what is the thrust
horsepower?

What is the brake horsepower assuming 88% propeller efficiency?

6.

22. How much brake horsepower does
it take to cruise an airplane under the following conditions?

Drag
= 600
lbs

IAS
= 200
kts

Density
ratio =
..7385

Propeller

23. It requires 525 pounds
of thrust to hold 200 knots EAS at sea level. How much thrust would it take to
hold the same EAS at 15,000 feet?

hint: in balanced flight drag equals
thrust required
