Example 3 - Wing Similar to F-117 - page 4

The figure on the previous page displays the mean aerodynamic chord of the right wing. Since the leading edge of the wing is a straight line, the leading edge of the MAC lies on this line. (The proof of this result for the general case is left as an exercise for the reader). However, the MAC is not a chord of this wing planform

Here, we see the MAC for the symmetric planform

Next - a B-2 like wing
