Question details

8. Given a glider consisting of a rectangular wing and horizontal tail with a slender boom carrying the vertical and horizontal tail surfaces. If the force and moment contributions of the boom are negligible, find the location fo the aircraft neutral point. The geometric characteristics of the glider are: wing area 360 ft wing aspect ration 10 MAC- 6 ft wing zero-lift angle--3.0 deg tail area 72 f tail aspect ratio 4 tail efficiency 0.9 wing zero lift pitch moment coef- -0.02 tail ac location- 3.24 MAC tail setting angle - -2.0 deg tail zero lift angle 0.0 deg wing setting angle -0.0 deg 0.264 Wing aero center 0.24MAC Assume a thin airfoil (2-D lift curve slope 2T)
