what and whereis the vertical stabilizer? it is in the back of the plane and it controls yaw.
Rudder, where and what does it do? back of the plane. change Yaw ( side to side)
Elevator where and what does it do? back of plane changes pitch 9 up and down)
flaps where and what does it do? wing, change lift and drag.
Aileron, where and what does it do? wing outside flap.... changes roll.
spoiler, where and what does it do? front of wing, changes lift, dragf and roll.
slats, where and what do they do? very front of wing, change lift.
fuselage ( body) what does it do.??? holds things together & carries the payload.
cockpit... where and what does it do? command and control, front of plane.
jet engine where and what does it do? generates thrust... circular things on the mid of plane.
wing.. where and what does it do? the middle of the plane... generates lift.
horizontal stabilizer. where and what? its in back of the plane and controls pitch.
charles law of gas. At constant pressure, the volume of a given mass of an gas increases or decreases by the same factor as its temperature
boyles gas law. For a fixed amount of an ideal gas kept at a fixed temperature, P [pressure] and V [volume] are inversely proportional (while one increases, the other decreases
bernulies fluid principals an increase in the speed of the fluid occurs simultaneously with a decrease in pressure or a decrease in the fluid's potential energy
pascal pressure exerted anywhere in a confined incompressible fluid is transmitted equally in all directions throughout the fluid
arcamedes is an upward acting force, caused by fluid pressure, that opposes an object's weight (think of water and peoples weight)
four forces of flight lift thrust drag and weight.
absolute zero 0 degrees.
newtons first law An object at rest will remain at rest unless acted on by an unbalanced force
newtons 2nd law Acceleration is produced when a force acts on a mass.
newtons third law For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action
