Creating A Camber Plot Using Mathematica

The NACA airfoils are some of the most common airfoils used in smaller lightweight airplanes. Below is a short bit of Mathematica code to draw the airfoils. It is very useful presentation purposes and can save a lot of time manually plotting the curves. a = .6; cli = .6; g = (- 1/(1-a))(a^2(.5 Log(a)-.25)+.25); h = 1/(1 – a)…
