The following question is from the FAA PAR (Private Pilot, Airplane) exam :
The load factor on an airplane increases with :
(A) Any moderate change in pitch attitude, increase in weight, and steep turns.
(B) Increase in weight, an increase in power, and any moderate pitch changes.
(C) Increase in weight, steep turns, and abrupt changes in airplane attitude.
The correct answer is supposed to be (C).
All of the answers say that load factor increases with an increase in weight. However, load factor is inversely proportional to weight by definition.
What am I misunderstanding?
Edit: I think it is supposed to say "load" instead of "load factor" but it was not written that way.
