  • 1. B – 52 Animation
  • 2. Facts After finding the coefficients of lift and drag I was finally able to calculate the glide ratio. The success of the B-2 was proved in Operation Allied Force, where it was responsible for destroying 33 percent of all Serbian targets in the first eight weeks, by flying nonstop to Kosovo from its home base in Missouri and back.. Many aspects of the low-observability process remain classified; however, the B-2's composite materials, special coatings and flying-wing design all contribute to its "stealthiness. At crusing speed, the engines exert 200kN of force. , are key members of the aircraft contractor team. The B-2's low observability is derived from a combination of reduced infrared, acoustic, electromagnetic, visual and radar signatures. The B-2 brings massive firepower to bear, in a short time, anywhere on the globe through previously impenetrable defenses.
  • 3. How to Control You have to be familiar with the aircraft to control perfectly. On the wings there are flaps that if you press a certain button, the flaps will go down to go up, up to go down and 1 up and 1 down to go side ways. There are also flaps on the tail fin.
  • 4. First Animation Air moves toward the wing
  • 5. Second Animation Low Pressure is faster than high pressure The slower the air the more pressure you will get in it
  • 6. Description The force needed to keep an airplane in the air is called ‘Lift’. Lift is produced by forcing air to flow over the wings. The construction of the wings is such that the air flowing over the top surface has to travel further, and it therefore travels faster, than the air under the wing. This causes the pressure of the air on the top of the wing to be lower, and so effectively the wing is sucked up by this lower pressure, and flies. Lift is produced independently of power from the engine. The engine produces ‘Thrust’, which gets the aircraft moving along the runway, so that air flows over the wings. Thrust also overcomes ‘Drag’, which is the force which tries to oppose the motion of the bomber through the air. The presence of the airplane – or any other object – causes friction; and this is a type of drag. The other force involved is ’Weight’, and the weight of the airplane determines how much lift is required to get it into the air. As long as there is enough lift to overcome the aircraft’s weight, and enough thrust from the engine to overcome the drag, then the plane will fly. Even if the engine stops, if the bomber is allowed to descend in a glide, the air over the wings will generate enough lift to keep it airborne, while the pilot prepares for a landing. http://aerospaceplanes.suite101.com/article.cfm/how_do_airplanes_flyr eference
