"The combination of a decreased pressure above an airfoil, and the increased pressure below the airfoil produces lift" ids best described by

• A.

Bernoulli's principle

• B.

Newton's first law of motion

• C.

Newton's second law of motion

• D.

Newton's third law of motion

A. Bernoulli's principle
Explanation
According to Bernoulli's principle, as the speed of a fluid (such as air) increases, its pressure decreases. In the case of an airfoil, the curved shape of the upper surface causes the air to travel faster, resulting in lower pressure above the airfoil. At the same time, the flat bottom surface of the airfoil causes the air to travel slower, resulting in higher pressure below the airfoil. This pressure difference creates an upward force, known as lift, which allows the airfoil to generate upward motion. Therefore, Bernoulli's principle best describes the combination of decreased pressure above an airfoil and increased pressure below the airfoil producing lift.
