wat will be the longitudinal static stability of an aircraft with a larger wing to a smaller wing?
Thread moved to Homework Help. Please take care to post homework/coursework questions in the Homework Help forums, and not in the general technical forums.
And you must show some of your work in order for us to provide tutorial help. What can you tell us about longitudinal stability? What effects would different shape and size wings have?
Is one expecting a qualitative or quantitative answer.
The larger wing has greater lift for given forward velocity. Then think about the response to perturbations in fluid properties.
Also, the moment of inertia increases with size. What effect does this have on pitch (longitudinal stability) or yaw (directional stability)?

Moment of inertia calculations:
yup. m sorry. i'll surely do tat next time onwards.
