- State the lengths of the major and minor axes of the
elliptical wing _______________.
- Use this information to write an equation of the ellipse (in
standard form, assuming a center at {0,0}).
- Sketch the ellipse on x, y axes with the center of the ellipse
at the origin. Label the coordinates of the extremities of the
major axis (wing tips) and minor axis.
- How is the minor axis related to chord length?
_____________________.
- Is the chord length constant? _____________________.
- What is the chord length 1 m from the ellipse's wing's center?
____________________.

2.8 m from the center? ___________________.

5 m from the center?___________. - Using the chord length 2.8 m from the center, compute an aspect ratio. _____________.
