What Is Meant by the Aspect Ratio?

Aspect Ratio =  Span     or             Area       .
                       Chord            Average Chord

Aspect ratio affects the lift curve. A high aspect ratio wing will have a higher maximum CL but a lower stalling angle than a low aspect ratio wing with the same aerofoil.

High aspect ratio wings produce less induced drag than low aspect ratio wings.
