The Four Forces of Flight
By Emily Hillman
Force 1 Lift
2. Lift is generated by every part of the airplane, but most of the lift on a normal airlineris generated by the wings.
Force 2 Thrust
1.Thrust is the force which moves an aircraft through the air.
2.Thrust is used to over come the drag of an airplane, and to over come the weight of a rocket.
Force 3 Drag
1.Drag is the aerodynamic force that opposes an aircrafts motion through the air.
2.Drag is generated by every part of the airplane even the engines.
Force 4 Weight
1.For instance , as a plane climbs, its weight is equal to a portion of lift force and a portion of the thrust force.
2.In this situation, the opposite forces of flight are no longer equal to one another.
