Dynamic Lift Force on an Aircraft Using Bernoulli’s Principle – Physics Problems

This physics video tutorial provides a basic introduction into how a dynamic lift force can be generated on an aircraft by understanding a few concepts from Bernoulli’s principle. It explains how to derive the formula to calculate the lift force using bernoulli’s equation. As the airplane moves through air, air flows faster on the top surface of the wing creating a low pressure region. The pressure on the bottom surface is higher due to a low air speed. This creates an upward lift force that depends on the density of the air, the area of the wings, and the square difference between the wind speed above and below the plane’s wings. This video contains plenty of examples and practice problems on how to calculate the dynamic lift force on an airplane wing using bernoulli’s principle.
