Unformatted text preview: to give an approximate answer, but clearly state the assumptions you used in your calculations. 3. Consider a ﬂat plate as shown in Figure 1, with sides x = 3 m and y = 2 m . Assume that the pressure distribution over the top of the surface follows p ( x,y ) = αx 2 + βy, where the values of the constants are α = 3 N/m 4 , and β = 1 N/m 3 . Calculate the resulting total pressure force exerted on the ﬂat plate. Figure 1: Pressure distribution over a ﬂat plate. 4. Write a Matlab script that plots the variation of pressure, density and temperature between altitudes 0-10 km. References  J. D. Anderson. Introduction to Flight .
