hfien an airplane describes a curve it takes a certain time
for it to turn from level to inclined position and then back to
level again. In the following, we express the motion about the
horizontal axis as "roll" or "bank" and the motion perpendicu-
lar to the vertical axis, i.e., the actual curve, as !turn."

The moment of wetli is

with coefficient of rolling moment cmr dependent on aileron
Therefrom follows the time' required to attain a
certain inclined position by given angular velocity* as
