2 MAE 2 Equations of Motion The equations of motion for gliding flight are expressed as: Assume sufficient lift force is available to maintain flight after the airplane leaves the launch tube. dV dt =− V 2 2 B g sin dh dt = V sin V = velocity = flight pathangle = density g = gravity dx dt = V cos d dt = 1 V [ V 2 2 A g cos ] h = altitude x = range t = time B = m S C D A = m S C L A = V b 2 2 g cos b V b = boost velocity b = launchangle B = A C L C D
