A statically-stable aircraft has a $C_{L_{\alpha}}=5$ (where the angle of attack, $\alpha$, is measured in radians). The coefficient of moment of the aircraft about the center of gravity is given as $C_{M, c . g}=0.05-4 \alpha$. The mean aerodynamic chord of the aircraft wing is $1 \mathrm{~m} .$ The location (positive towards the nose) of the neutral point of the aircraft from the center of gravity is______________ (in $\mathrm{m}$, accurate to two decimal places).
