Angle of attack
1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
"When a jet plane is cruising at high altitude, the flight attendants have more of a hill to climb as they walk forward along the aisle when the plane is cruising at low altitude. Why does the pilot have to fly with a great angle of attack at high altitude than at low altitude?"
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
Something to do with pressure?
