Sir Plz teach slowly.. Thoda clearly n dhire bola kre.. ☺.
you unturned the physics also..... that's awesome
what is barnauli theorm on which it works??

Bernoulli Theorem is basically energy conservation for moving fluids. As the air above the wings of airplane moves withe greater speed, its pressure decreases, resulting in upward net force.

  1. For thousands of years people have wanted to fly


  2. Hot air balloons Gliders


  3. Supersonic jets


  4. Force is defined as PUSH --PULL


  5. Lift Drag Thrust Gravity


  6. Lift Drag Thrust Gravity Gravity is a force that pulls everything towards the Earth's surface. This pull is called the weight force.


  7. Objects in flight need to provide enough lift force to oppose the weight force. So lift is a force that acts upwards against weight and is caused by the air moving over and under the wings. Lift Drag Thrust Gravity Gravity is a force that pulls everything towards the Earth's surface. This pull is called the weight force.


  8. The power source of a bird or plane provides the thrust. Thrust is the force that moves the object forward Lift Drag Thrust Gravity


  9. The force working against thrust is called drag. It is caused by air resistance and acts in the opposite direction to the motion. The power source of a bird or plane provides the thrust. Thrust is the force that moves the object forward Lift Drag Thrust Gravity


  10. An object in flight is always engaged in a tug of war of these four forces Lift Drag Thrust Gravity


  11. Lift and drag are considered aerodynamic forces because they exist due to the movement of an object through the air Drag Aerodynamic Force Relative Wind Center of Pressure


  12. Because the plane is moving faster, drag is increased, which slows the plane from speeding up as quickly until thrust and drag are equal again.
