Understanding Airplane Lift and Physics — for Kids!


How do airplanes fly and stay in the air? The Wright Brothers figured this out by mastering a physics force called “lift”. Mostly created by the wings, lift holds an aircraft in the air. Thanks to Ansys technology, you can run airplane simulations to explore how lift is generated — directly on your computer — using the same software that even NASA scientists use! This cool video — ideal for grade schoolers (K – 7th grade) — performs fun experiments with paper airplanes and other exciting demonstrations to easily explain how lift works. Want to conduct your own lift experiment? Try building the paper airplane used in the video! Visit www.ansys.com/paperairplane
