**Lateral**** Stability & Control**

**Lateral Static Stability**

- What is the effect of wing dihedral on the lateral stability of an airplane?
- What is the effect of wing sweep on the lateral stability of an airplane?
- Does it make a difference if the sweep is aft or forward?
- How do we usually compensate for the sweep effect on high performance airplanes?
- What is the effect of flaps (employed during takeoff and landing) on the lateral stability of an airplane?
- What is the effect of the fuselage on the lateral stability of an airplane?
- What is the effect of the vertical stabilizer on the lateral stability of an airplane?
- What is the effect of a dorsal fin on the lateral stability of an airplane?
- What is the effect of a ventral fin on the lateral stability of an airplane?
- What is the effect of wing placement (high vs. low) on the lateral stability of an airplane?

**Lateral Dynamic Stability**

- Describe damping in roll.
- Describe autorotation.
