Airplane Wings Explained
Today we learned how airplane wings stay in the air. By making wings out of paper we demonstrated that the wing splits the airstream creating two air streams; one above the wing and one below the wing. The top of the wing is longer making the air travel faster. This creates a low-pressure vacuum above the wing pulling the aircraft upward. See the assignment/lab, pictures, and video below.
