In summary, the purpose of plotting pressure distribution around an airfoil is to understand its aerodynamic properties and design efficient shapes. Pressure distribution is typically measured using pressure sensors or taps, and the pressure coefficient is calculated by comparing local pressure to freestream pressure. The angle of attack greatly affects pressure distribution and can be influenced by various factors such as airfoil shape, size, and surface roughness.

The purpose of plotting pressure distribution around an airfoil is to understand how the air is flowing around the airfoil and how it affects the lift and drag forces acting on the airfoil. This information is important for designing efficient and aerodynamic airfoil shapes.

Pressure distribution around an airfoil is typically measured using pressure sensors or pressure taps placed at specific locations on the airfoil's surface. These sensors measure the static pressure at each location, which is then used to calculate the pressure coefficient.

The pressure coefficient is a dimensionless value that represents the local pressure compared to the freestream pressure. It is calculated by dividing the difference between the local pressure and the freestream pressure by the dynamic pressure of the flow. The dynamic pressure is calculated using the flow velocity and air density.

The pressure distribution around an airfoil is greatly affected by the angle of attack, which is the angle between the airfoil's chord line and the direction of the freestream flow. As the angle of attack increases, the pressure distribution on the airfoil changes, resulting in changes in lift and drag forces.

The pressure distribution around an airfoil can be influenced by several factors, including angle of attack, airfoil shape, airfoil size, airfoil surface roughness, and the properties of the air, such as density and viscosity. Other external factors, such as turbulence and nearby objects, can also affect the pressure distribution.
