I was writing an answer to this question and I needed to derive some relations to make it clearer and because I think that in some cases, it is better to use an equation than a lot of text. However, to typeset equations, it is quite tedious... Should we ask for and use MathJaX to simplify and get a better output in our questions and answers? What would be the cons of such a typesetting method?
Here are some questions that are using math in some form (either unicode greek/math symbols, images, html or just plain text) that could possibly be improved by mathjax:
- How is pressure related to air density?
- How to calculate angular velocity and radius of a turn?
- How does stall depend on angle of attack but not speed?
- In the upper air, do pilots use flaps to generate lift as well slow down an aircraft?
- How does a Mach Meter determine the speed of sound at a given altitude?
- How significant is antenna drag on light GA aircraft?
- How does an aircraft tailplane work?
And here is one with an answer that may have included some math if it were more accessible
- What is turbulence, and how does it happen?
- How do pilots decide what their cruising altitude will be?
I linked to the question in each case but in general the math is in the answers to these questions.
