Lift produced by a body displacing a greater weight of air than its own weight is called _________ lift.
Aerostatic
think.. not moving.
Lift produced by the reaction caused when a mass of air is deflected downward is called __________ lift.
Aerodynamic
The lowest layer of our atmosphere is called the ________________.
Troposphere
space is like the antarctic, so the atmosphere closest to us would be like..
The layer of our atmosphere that is typified by the temperature of the air remaining constant as the pressure continues to drop is called the _________.
Stratosphere
The type of altitude measurement used to determine the amount of lift produced by an airfoil or the performance of an aircraft engine is ______________ altitude.
Density
you aren't 'dense'
The principle of physics that states that if the total energy in the air moving over an airfoil remains constant, any increase in its velocity will result in a corresponding decrease in its pressure, is called _________ principle.
