The parameters include,   The Wing span in feet. The Wing Area if feet^2/sec. The Normal Gross Weight of the Airplane in pounds lb. The fuel capacity of the Airplane in gallons (gal) of aviation gasoline. The Power-plant / Engine Hourse Power value (hp). The Specific Fuel Consumption Value in lb/ (hp)(h) The Parasite Drag Coefficient of the Airplane Cd,0 value. The Value of the Oswald Efficiency Factor, e. The Value of the Propeller Efficiency And the Assumed Velocity in feet /sec. Performing the calculation, The Rate of Climb R/C for Propeller Aircraft is computed in ft/min by using the formula, Rate of Climb for Single Engine Propeller Airplane  = Excess Power / W = Pa-Pr/W Furthermore, the Rate of Climb at given velocity is also computed. A table is also generated showing different Rate of Climb values in ft/min against different values of velocity. Download Free Program to Calculate the Rate of Climb R/C of a Propeller Driven Airplane
