An aircraft initially flying level with a velocity of 130 m/s pulls into:
a turn of radius 300m at constant altitude (i.e. a horizontal circle) with constant velocity;
a loop (i.e. a vertical circle path) of radius 300m, where the thrust is varied to equal the drag at any point (hence, any change in velocity is entirely due to gravitational effects).
Determine the load factor for (1.) and (2.) when the aircraft is a the 90, 180- and 270-degrees position within the loop.
I have been trying to understand the question, however, I don't entirely understand what they mean. 90, 180 and 270 don't seem like banking angles and specially for part b, does it mean that at 90 degrees it has travelled 300 m vertically and its velocity will decrease based only on the gravity? Also, does the question assume 0 banking angle?
