## Area of the body for lift force in body moving on fluid Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Reference Area = Lift force/(Lift Coefficient*0.5*Density of Fluid*(Velocity^2))
S = FL/(CL*0.5*ρFluid*(v^2))
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
Lift force - The lift force, lifting force or simply lift is the sum of all the forces on a body that force it to move perpendicular to the direction of flow. (Measured in Newton)
Lift Coefficient- The Lift Coefficient is a dimensionless coefficient that relates the lift generated by a lifting body to the fluid density around the body, the fluid velocity and an associated reference area.
Density of Fluid - Density of Fluid is defined as the mass of fluid per unit volume of the said fluid. (Measured in Kilogram per Meter³)
Velocity - Velocity is a vector quantity (it has both magnitude and direction) and is the rate of change of the position of an object with respect to time. (Measured in Meter per Second)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Lift force: 10 Newton --> 10 Newton No Conversion Required
Lift Coefficient: 5 --> No Conversion Required
Density of Fluid: 10 Kilogram per Meter³ --> 10 Kilogram per Meter³ No Conversion Required
Velocity: 60 Meter per Second --> 60 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
S = FL/(CL*0.5*ρFluid*(v^2)) --> 10/(5*0.5*10*(60^2))
Evaluating ... ...
S = 0.000111111111111111
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
0.000111111111111111 Square Meter --> No Conversion Required
0.000111111111111111 Square Meter <-- Reference Area

## What is lift force?

A fluid flowing around the surface of an object exerts a force on it. Lift is the component of this force that is perpendicular to the oncoming flow direction. It contrasts with the drag force, which is the component of the force parallel to the flow direction.

## What is lift coefficient?

The lift coefficient (CL) is a dimensionless coefficient that relates the lift generated by a lifting body to the fluid density around the body, the fluid velocity, and an associated reference area.
