2 MAE 2 Drag Polar The drag polar provides the basic aerodynamic information needed to predict performance of an airplane. C D = C D , 0 rC L 2 C L 2 e AR Induced Drag (from wing) Parasite Drag : includes profile drag of wing, friction and pressure drag of tail, fuselage, engine nacelles, landing gear, etc. C D = C D , 0 r 1 e AR C L 2 C D = C D , 0 C L 2 e AR insert confusing notation change here Drag Polar Parasite Drag at zero lift Drag due to lift e = Oswald's efficiency factor
