4. Concept of Lift Force

Session 1: Preparation for the concept of lift

Objective 1: To show that when air is moving, some unexpected effects are produced

Objective 2: To arrive at the conclusion that when air is moving faster it pushes less and vice-versa


Session 2: Lift of the airfoil of the airplane

Objective 1: To build a small facility to test an airfoil

Objective 2: To link the lift on an airfoil to the experiments performed in session 1.
