Unformatted text preview: 4. What are the two methods used to obtain the Lift force for this experiment? 5. Sample calculation. Calculation the lift coefficient based on the following data: Lift force is 2.446N, the chord length is 0.3048m, the airfoil span is 1m, air density is 1.1934kg/m^3, the free stream velocity is 4.1m/s. (Hint: the definition of the lift coefficient.)...
