Question 1:

Find the dimensionless velocities at at least 50 points along the airfoil surface.

**To find these velocities the equation for the u values is (1) for this equation t is
**

the panel distribution according to the cosine distribution. X is the distance from

the origin along the cord from the leading edge to the trailing edge. Z is the

location of the point on the upper surface of the airfoil at a distance x along the

airfoil.

Using these equations it is possible to find the velocities of u and w of a point

along the upper surface of the airfoil.

Question 2:

**Find and plot the pressure coefficients as a function of the dimensionless x at these
**

points.

Figure (1) is the plot that these points provided.

Question 3:

**Compare your results with the following. Comment on how well or how poorly the
**

pressures compare.

**The two plots compare very well. The plots are almost identical expect
**

where the x value approaches the leading and trailing edges. As the x value

approaches these edges the equation for the plot causes a discontinuity. This

discontinuity can not be plotted accurately using discrete methods. The plots

created using this method are very accurate until very close to the stagnation

points. As figure (2) and (3) show when the gridlines and ticks are the same, the

plots are the same until very close to 0 and 1 on the chord axis.
