Let's remember for a second that on the upper side of the wings there is lower pressure than the free stream (air far from the aircraft). If the aircraft is travelling through humid air, the ...

How does experienced pressure vary with airspeed?
0 votes

Drag increases with the square of airspeed. Is the same true of the pressure that a forward-facing area experiences? Drag increases with the square of the airspeed because it is a function of the ...

What is the aspect ratio of a wing?
0 votes

The Aspect Ratio ($AR$) is defined as the ratio (hence the name) between the wingspan squared $b^2$ and the area of the wing $S$. Since both $b^2$ and $S$ are measured with a length squared (e.g., $m^...

For the same airspeed does the attitude of an airplane change with varying wind directions?
0 votes

If the change is in direction, the airplane will change its yaw (also known as heading) angle, so that the track angle (the direction along which it is travelling) does not change. For more ...
