2 MAE 2 Pitching Moment at CG For stability analysis, it is desired to combine all forces (wing and tail) at a common reference point. The center-of-gravity is a commonly used reference point for rigid aircraft. The center-of-buoyancy is a commonly used reference point for balloons and dirigibles. L t D t M act c.g. L w D w M acw L cg M cg D cg L cg = L w L t wing horizontal tail D cg = D w D t = sum of wing lift and tail lift = sum of wing drag and tail drag M cg M acw M act some terms are missing. ..

3 MAE 2 Additional Moment Terms Lift and drag forces from wing and tail will produce additional moment contributions about the center-of-gravity. c.g. M acw M cg = M acw c.g.
