How Do Airplanes Fly?
Transcript of How Do Airplanes Fly?
First, let's check out the video:
The wings curved shape causes the air going over the top of the wing to move at a higher speed, and the air going under the wing to move at a slower speed.
slower speeds = higher pressure
Here's a wrap-up of the video:
As an aircrafts wings go through the air, it slices the air in half.
The higher pressure at the bottom pushes up on the wing, creating lift.
When an airplane takes off, the wing is set at an angle.
Higher angle = more lift
When the plane starts moving on the runway, it is moving very slowly. As it starts to move faster, it is creating more lift under the wing.
higher speed = more lift
Airplanes must fight against a force called
. What is gravity? Watch the video and find out!
