During pre-flight calculations the pilot finds out that the take-off CG position is 8 cm aft of the take-off CG aft limit. The TOM is 7 312 kg.
Determine the minimum distance forwards that he/she should move a box with a mass of 362 kg to change the CG to within the take-off limits:
  • A
    153.6 cm
  • B
    1.616 m
  • C
    169.6 cm
  • D
    161.6 m
Mass Change / Total Mass = Change of CG / Distance
  • Mass Change: 362 kg
  • Total Mass: 7312 kg
  • Change of CG: 8 cm
  • Distance: ?
362 kg / 7 312 kg = 8 / Distance
Distance = (7 312 kg x 8 cm) / 362 kg
Distance = 161.6 cm = 1.616 m
