Airplanes

By: Sehr, Kristen,and Aimee

What is it made of?

The airplanes' frame is mostly made up of aluminum which is a light metal. Some other planes are made of carbon reinforced plastic, which is a composite, and it is super light just like aluminum. Light alloy named titanium are also used to build other parts of the plane. The engine piston is almost always made of steel, along with aluminum which is used for the major parts of the airplane.

Who and where was it invented?

It was invented by the wright brothers, Orville and Wilbur, in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina. On December 17, 1903, the first flight was taken by the brothers themselves. They ended up flying the plane, although only for a short period of time, 4 times.

How does it work?

A plane's engines are designed to move it forward at high speed. That makes air flow rapidly over the wings, which throw the air down toward the ground, generating an upward force called lift that overcomes the plane's weight and holds it in the sky.

What is it's impact on society?

Some of the most obvious impacts of airplanes are increases in the speed of travel, drastic changes in warfare methods, commercial impacts and the development of aeronautics, explains TeenInk. However, other impacts of air travel are much more subtle, including the jobs created by construction of airplanes and the commercial flight industry, changes in perception of the world, environmental damages and noise pollution.

How has it impacted the way people use their resources?

People often buy plane tickets to go somewhere else to visit. People have to pay for their tickets and it is a lot more now than it was. Airplanes allow people to travel to places in a shorter amount of time, it is the fastest mode of transportation.

How has it impacted the way people interact with others?

Now people can just decide that they want to go visit someone and all that they have to do is buy a plane ticket and go see them. It has made interaction between people easier.

How has it impacted where people are able to live?

It allows people to now live almost everywhere imaginable on earth because the airplanes allow them to move easy, in like a couple days, instead of having to take months just to get to the place you are moving too.

What is the impact of your innovation on globalization?

Airplanes allow people to spread their culture into areas that haven't seen that culture before because it can move them halfway around the world in a matter of hours. This also allows for people to experience cultures a lot easier. Lastly airplanes have allowed people to spread cultural artifacts for everyone to see all over the world.
