The principle of lift is a mathematical equation theory which was explored and explained by the 18th century Swiss-born mathematician and inventor, Daniel Bernoulli. "Bernoulli's Principle" was a discovery that changed the very foundations of travel and aircraft research when he discovered the equation which...
 By: Eve Redstone Safe flying requires that the pilot knows the speed and altitude that they are flying at. Air speed is measured using small tubes called Pitot tubes (pee-to). These cylindrical tubes are positioned on the aircraft and air naturally flows into them during flight. The tube...

Daniel Bernoulli was born in Groningen, the Netherlands, in 1700 and died in Basel, Switzerland in 1782. He is remembered for his mathematical work in fluid mechanics, as well as his contributions in the fields of probability and statistics.Besides his other notable achievements, he...

Fission and fusion are each atomic nuclear reactions but they are very different from one another. Atomic means they involve individual atoms while nuclear means that the reaction is in the nucleus of the atoms. Reaction means that an interaction takes place that causes a...

The axis of an aircraft are the most crucial and important things during air-travel. The axis work as a simple steering method, but we as the general public and users of an air-craft would not consider the technicalities and workmanship of what goes on inside...

Wind is the main element contributing to the stability of an airplane. Aircraft require lift to remain airborne, lift generated by wind passing over the wings. The shape of a wing is such that the upper surface is longer then the bottom surface. As the...

More than a century before the Wright brothers' first flight, a Swiss mathematician named Daniel Bernoulli developed a theory on how it could be accomplished. Based on Newton's 2nd law of gravity Bernoulli showed air will always travel faster over a curved top surface, such...

With an in flight aircraft the direction and altitude of flight is determined by the three rotational axis operating from a center point within the aircraft. All three axis work together to determine the attitude of the aircraft. The three separate axis of movement are...
