Go to http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/vel.html and use the simulator to determine the effect of airspeed on lift. When you double the airspeed, what happens to lift.
The velocity used in the lift and drag equations is the relative velocity between an object and the flow. Since the aerodynamic force depends on the square of the velocity, doubling the velocity will quadruple the lift and drag.
Go to http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/incline.html and use the simulator to determine the effect of angle of attack on lift. When you increase the angle of attack, what happens to lift.
Lift increases as the angle of attack increases up to a point when the boundary layer separates from the aircraft and the airfoil stalls.
Go to http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12/airplane/factord.html Briefely state the effect of angle of attack on induced drag. When you increase the angle of attack, what happens to induced drag.
Like lift, drag actually varies with the square of the relative velocity between the object and the air. The inclination of the object to the flow also affects the amount of drag generated by a given shaped object.
Go to http://www.grc.nasa.gov/WWW/K-12//airplane/atmosi.html and use the simulator to determine the effect of altitude and combined factors on lift. When you increase the altitude, what happens to lift.
As we increase altitude, the air becomes less dense and the lift decreases for a given airspeed and angle of attack.
Landing gear lowered and flaps deployed to augment lift.
The aircraft reaches Mach 1, shock induced drag adds to sum total of drag, and the minimum KEAS is increased.
The pilot must reduce power to slow the aircraft to a speed allowing the bank of up to 35°.
