Here are some questions related to it. (1.2a) In which frame the velocity, roll, pitch, d yaw rate are expressed in? (2 points) (1.2b) What is the rotation sequence from the inertial frame to the body frame? (2 points) (120) Is the Euler angle rate the same as the yaw, pitch/and roll rates or not? (2 points) (1.3) Please list two types of drag. (2 points) (1.4) Which point is stable in the following thrust curve, V; or Y4? (2 points) (1.5) In order to decrease the level turn radius, shonjd’"you lower the A/C speed or increase the A/C speed? (2 points) (1.6) Please explain what the “adverse yaw” is using one sentence. (2 points) (1.7) Will downwash increase or decrease the horizontal tail’s effective angle of attack?

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
