Getting a Little "Lift"
out of Calculus
Part II: Activity


If so instructed by your teacher, print out a worksheet
page for these problems.
Procedure:

 Looking at the plots in these three problems, predict
which airfoil will have the greatest lift force.
 Find the lift generated by an airfoil given a
pressure vs. area plot using one of the techniques
developed in Part I of this series. All work must be
shown in order to justify your answer.
 Include a statement explaining your reason for using
the method you chose for each problem.
 How well did your results agree with your
predictions?
