Load factor as a result of constant roll rate

  1. Feb 3, 2015 #1
    The fuel pressure load equation for an aircraft in a constant roll maneuver has the term (as a result of the roll maneuver):



    [itex]R[/itex] - radius from center of fuselage
    [itex]g[/itex] - gravitational constant
    [itex]\dot{\phi}[/itex] - roll rate

    my question is where does the "2" next to the gravitational constant come from?
