Up, Up and Away



Have you ever taken a plane ride? Isn't it weird to think about how this huge mass is soaring through the sky without falling to its death? How is this remotely possible? Well simply put, physics!

After breaking it all down, an airplanes flight ability comes down to one key thing, and that is the balance of force. If the upward force of the object is greater than that of the force being pushed onto the object, the object will rise. If the force of gravity to too great, then the object will not be able to rise. Balancing the forces is key, and vital to the planes ability to fly. All of us know Isaac Newton, and his three principles help us to better understand exactly how flight is possible.
