How to Calculate Lift on airfoil?
Lift on airfoil calculator uses Lift on Airfoil = Normal Force on Airfoil*cos(Angle of Attack of Airfoil)-Axial Force on airfoil*sin(Angle of Attack of Airfoil) to calculate the Lift on Airfoil, The Lift on airfoil formula is defined as the component of the resultant force acting on an airfoil in the direction perpendicular to freestream velocity. Lift on Airfoil is denoted by L symbol.
How to calculate Lift on airfoil using this online calculator? To use this online calculator for Lift on airfoil, enter Normal Force on Airfoil (N), Angle of Attack of Airfoil (α°) & Axial Force on airfoil (A) and hit the calculate button. Here is how the Lift on airfoil calculation can be explained with given input values -> 8.109487 = 11*cos(0.13962634015952)-20*sin(0.13962634015952).
