How to Calculate Power required at an altitude?
Power required at an altitude calculator uses Power required at an altitude=sqrt(2*(Weight^3)*(Drag Coefficient^2)/(Density*Reference Area*(lift coefficient^3))) to calculate the Power required at an altitude, The Power required at an altitude for an aircraft is a function of the weight, reference area, aerodynamic coefficients of the aircraft, and the density of air at that altitude. Power required at an altitude and is denoted by P_{R,alt} symbol.
How to calculate Power required at an altitude using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Power required at an altitude, enter Weight (W), Drag Coefficient (C_{D}), Density (ρ), Reference Area (S) and lift coefficient (C_{L}) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Power required at an altitude calculation can be explained with given input values -> 63.34064 = sqrt(2*(100^3)*(100^2)/(997*5*(10^3))).
