Lift Relationships Worksheet
Airspeed: 100 mph
Altitude: 0 ft
Angle: 0.0 degrees
Thickness: 12.5%
Camber: 0.0
Area: 1 sq ft.
2. Determine the lift value for each of the prescribed Angle levels, while keeping the other values the same.












3. On the graph below, graph the values for Angle and Lift. (Place the Angle on the yaxis and the Lift on the xaxis.)
4. What is the relationship between angle and lift? ___________________________
5. Write an equation that will sum up this relationship. ________________________
6. Using FoilSim, and keping the angle set at 4 degrees, determine the Lift values for the following Airspeeds.










7. On the graph below, graph the values for Airspeed and the corresponding Lift levels.
8. What is the relationship between the airspeed and the lift? _____________________________
9. Write an equation that will sum up this relationship. __________________________________
Extra Activity:
a. Using FoilSim, manipulate the values for all the different parameters until you get the highest lift value possible on this particular simulation.
b. What were your values for the different parameters?
