How does the shape of the wing affect its performance?
When I say 'shape of the wing' I don't mean the cross sectional profile of the airofoil. I'm referring to the overall design of the wing like delta, elliptical, rectangular, tapered, swept back/forward, etc.
Also, if 2 wings have the same wing area and have the same wing profile, but differ in the overall shape, would their lift coefficients be the same? If not, why and how?
