The Modern Lift Equation Solution

STEP 0: Pre-Calculation Summary
Formula Used
Lift on airfoil = (Lift Coefficient* Air Density* Aircraft Gross Wing Area* Fluid Velocity)/2
L = (CL* ρ* S* uFluid)/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.
Air Density - Air Density is the density of wind or air in the atmosphere. (Measured in Gram per Meter³)
Aircraft Gross Wing Area - Aircraft Gross Wing Area calculated by looking at the wing from a top-down view and measuring the area of the wing. (Measured in Square Meter)
Fluid Velocity - Fluid velocity is the volume of fluid flowing in the given vessel per unit cross sectional area. (Measured in Meter per Second)
STEP 1: Convert Input(s) to Base Unit
Lift Coefficient: 5 --> No Conversion Required
Air Density: 1201 Gram per Meter³ --> 1.201 Kilogram per Meter³ (Check conversion here)
Aircraft Gross Wing Area: 4 Square Meter --> 4 Square Meter No Conversion Required
Fluid Velocity: 12 Meter per Second --> 12 Meter per Second No Conversion Required
STEP 2: Evaluate Formula
Substituting Input Values in Formula
L = (CL* ρ* S* uFluid)/2 --> (5* 1.201* 4* 12)/2
Evaluating ... ...
L = 144.12
STEP 3: Convert Result to Output's Unit
144.12 Newton --> No Conversion Required
144.12 Newton <-- Lift on airfoil

What is 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.

What is Wing Area?

The wing area is a projected area and is almost half of the total surface area. In aerodynamics, the surface area of a wing is calculated by looking at the wing from a top-down view and measuring the area of the wing. This surface area is also known as the planform area.
