WHAT HAVE WE SEEN SO FAR? A brief recap…
So far, we have looked at fluids and we have seen that fluids exist as both liquid and as air. FLUIDS We have also seen how a fluid passes around an object.
Bernoulli noticed that pressure exists all around us. In fact, he found that stationary fluids such as air and water exert pressure in all directions. BERNOULLI’S PRINCIPLE
Bernoulli also discovered that the faster air flows, the less pressure it has.
Now, we are going to look at the force of LIFT and see how it applies to flying objects such as airplanes.
Airplanes stay in the air because of the shape of their wings.
Imagine a wing without it’s skin on
Imagine a wing flying fast through the air DIRECTION OF AIRPLANE
The special shape of a wing is called an airfoil.
An airfoil is flat on the bottom and curved on the top. BOTTOM TOP
BOTTOM DIRECTION OF AIRPLANE
How does a wing rise as air passes around it?
When air hits the front of the wing it splits up
The air flowing over the curved top of the wing has further to go than the air going under the flat bottom of the wing.
Predict: How will both air molecules arrive at the tail of the wing at the same time if the molecule on top has a farther distance to travel?
For the two streams of air to reach the back of the wing at the same time, the top stream must travel faster than the bottom. (It has a farther distance to go.)
This fast moving air creates a low pressure area on the top of the wing and a high pressure area on the bottom of the wing. (Bernoulli’s Principle) LOW PRESSURE HIGH PRESSURE
Predict: What is our high pressure air zone going to do? Why? LOW PRESSURE HIGH PRESSURE
Air will move from a high pressure zone to low pressure zone. As it pushes against the wing, lift is created. LOW PRESSURE HIGH PRESSURE
Exploring the Four Forces of Flight
How Airplanes work and how has it changed
Overview Brief discussion of the 4 forces acting on a plane Brief discussion of the 4 forces acting on a plane Brief definition of the 4 forces Brief.
Properties of Fluids Chapter 14 Section 2. How do ships float? Despite their weight, ships are able to float. This is because a greater force pushing.
Fluid Speed in a Pipe v2v2 An incompressible fluid, like water, flowing through a pipe will slow down if the pipe gets wider. blue volume= purple volume.
The Magic of… Bernoulli’s Principle. Aerodynamics is… The study of forces and the resulting motion of objects through the air.
Daniel Bernoulli was a Swiss scientist ( ) who analyzed the pressures involved with fluids. He found that stationary fluids such as air and water.
Airfoils, Lift and Bernoulli’s Principle
Transmitting Pressure in a Fluid
The fast-moving stream of air from the blow dryer creates a column of low-pressure air. The table tennis ball is suspended in an area of low pressure.
A transportation that flies. Airplanes!. What is an airplane? An airplane is a fixed wing vehicle that flies through the air. Airplanes can have jet engines.
The Forces on an Airplane. Four Main Forces Lift, Weight, Thrust, and Drag.
What’s Going On? AIR water level is low Air bubbles push the water level up AIR the water pushed up is the SAME SIZE as the bubble = = Bubble push Same.
How do airplane wings help an airplane fly? Information from : Nova Scotia Science 6 – McGraw-Hill Ryerson.
Aerodynamics. Learning Standards 6. Transportation Technologies Transportation technologies are systems and devices that move goods and people from one.
The Role of Lift in Overcoming Gravity. Background Bernoulli’s Principle (discussed in the previous lesson) also applies to flight. The difference in.
