The first question can be answered with what you alread know from last
week's lectures; the second question will require information from
the remaining lectures this week.
You will need to estimate the derivative (d\epsilon)/(d\alpha) to account for
the wing downwash at the tail. You can use Eq. (2.35) from the notes,
taking the parameter \kappa = 1.5, as indicated on the handout.
You may also assume that the spanwise efficiency factor for the wing
is e = 1.0.
