How can we determine the minimum power required for a propeller aircraft?
- How can we determine the minimum power required at standard altitude of h=3km
What is the maximum airspeed at standard sea level conditions ?
- Wingspan = 10m
- Wing area =15m Squared
- Mass = 1500 kg
- Power plant = one-piston engine of 230hp power available at sea level
- Parasite drag coefficient= 0.025
- Oswald efficiency = 0.8
- Air density at 3 km = 0.9093 kg/m3
