How do Wing Area, Wing Angle and Wing Camber Affect Lift?

This lesson will allow students to use FoilSim software to explore how wing area, wing shape and wing angle affects the force of lift and the planes ability to fly. Students will gain an understanding of how wing area, shape and angle affect flight, and examine examples of wings and describe how changes in wing area, wing camber and wing angle can be used to increase lift.
