What is aerodynamics?

Aerodynamics is the motion of the air around objects. Whenever anything is “flying” it is reacting to aerodynamics. 

Objects such as airplanes, helicopters, drones, rockets, and even birds all follow the rules of aerodynamics for a successful flight!

Rules of aerodynamics!

The rules of aerodynamics include the forces acting on an object which is in the air. These forces are the weight of the object, liftdrag, and thrust.

To understand these 4 terms, let's watch the video below!

Drones by NASA!

A helicopter moves air over its rotor by spinning the blades. The rotor generates the lift that carries the helicopter up.
