The aerodynamic equation of state is introduced in Part I and applies to selected aerospace systems. Part II applies it to the flapping of hovering and forward-flying biological fliers. This last Part III expands the aerodynamic equation of state by adding the potential energy term, assumed up to this point to be zero as the system and its trajectory is placed coplanar with an arbitrary reference potential plane. Part III applies the expanded equation of state to familiar and well-trodden fluid-static and fluid-dynamic cases selected from fluid mechanic textbooks.
