## Lift force for a body moving in a fluid of certain density Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Lift Force = Lift Coefficient*Reference Area*Density*(Velocity^2)/2
L = CL*S*ρ*(v^2)/2
This formula uses 4 Variables
Variables Used
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.
Reference Area - The Reference Area is arbitrarily an area that is characteristic of the object being considered. For an aircraft wing, the wing's planform area is called the reference wing area or simply wing area. (Measured in Square Meter)
Density - The density of a material shows the denseness of that material in a specific given area. This is taken as mass per unit volume of a given object. (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 Coefficient: 5 --> No Conversion Required
Reference Area: 5 Square Meter --> 5 Square Meter No Conversion Required
Density: 997 Kilogram per Meter³ --> 997 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
L = CL*S*ρ*(v^2)/2 --> 5*5*997*(60^2)/2
Evaluating ... ...
L = 44865000
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
44865000 Newton -->44865 Kilonewton (Check conversion here)
44865 Kilonewton <-- Lift Force

## 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.

## How to Calculate Lift force for a body moving in a fluid of certain density?
