# Aircraft Equations

Hi everyone....I want to do a presentation in my Precalculus class on different types of equations used in all types of careers. I was wondering if anyone could steer me to a place where I could find aircraft operations equations (ex. take-off speed, fuel burn,etc...). I just want to show all the different types of math operations used by professionals everyday. Thanks.

We mostly use charts, I suppose you could qork out the equation from there.

Thanks a lot Systems Operator....this site is very useful.

full fuel + 6qts of oil - student= a good flight!

Just kidding!

#landings=#takeoffs

Since calculus is mostly rate-of-change type stuff, why not bang up an equation showing the rate at which the center of gravity moves forward (or aft) as the fuel is burned as a function of time.

# of takeoffs= # of landings!!!
Big LOL!!

That was good Dan.

There's a book called Physics For Game Developers that has a section on flight simulation.

It was a pretty nice intro to the math behind flight.

There was also a book that I saw at Borders that was called something like Pilot Math that pretty much covered everything from performance to navigation.

The title of the book is Mental Math For Pilots.

The POH should show some basic equations in the performance section.
