Unformatted text preview: Compute: a) the lift coefficient C L b) The drag coefficient C D c) The wing loading (Lift / Wing Area) d) The wing span (Note: AR= Span ^2 / Wing Area) Find out in the book where these variables are defined, and use them. 3. Consider the low speed flight of the space shuttle as it is nearing landing. At the nose of the shuttle, the air pressure and temperature are 1.2 atm and 300 degrees K, respectively. Compute the density and specific volume. Note that specific volume equals inverse of density. 4. Calculate the weight of the air in lbf contained within a room that is 20 feet long, 15 feet wide and 8 feet tall, Assume standard atmospheric conditions. 5. If 1500 lbm of air is pumped into a previously empty 900 cubic feet capacity tank, and the air temperature within the tank is 70 deg F, what is the pressure in the tank in atmospheres?...
