Module 8. Basic aerodynamics
With a trailing edge flap being lowered, due to rising gusts, what will happen to the angle of attack?
•  Tend to decrease.
•  Stay the same.
•  Tend to increase.

Skap92 asking:
•  Someone can show me why the angle of attack tend to increase?

Rising gust vector practically has two components, vertical and horizontal. Vertical component will affect relative airflow in way to increase angle of attack. P.S. Angle of attack is the angle between relative airflow and wing chord line.

Wouldn't the effect of putting flaps down cause the pressure distribution of the wing to move rearward (i.e. centre of pressure moves rearward ) causing the nose to be pushed down which will tend to decrease the angle of attack??

May be the catch of this question lies in rising gusts.
