Air | Math in the Middle of Motion

Video

In this lesson we are going to learn about the mathematics relating to flight. This type of motion is the combined effect of the forces lift, weight drag and thrust.
Algebra is the study and manipulation of mathematical symbols which could involve solving an equation, isolating variables, and/or simplifying expressions.
