    DANIEL BERNOULLI DEVELOPED A THEORY ON THE RELATIONSHIP OF FLUID SPEED,

    • A.

      AND PRESSURE

    • B.

      AIR, AND PRESSURE

    • C.

      TIME, AND PRESSURE

    • D.

      AIR PRESSURE, AND VENTURI

    Correct Answer
    A. AND PRESSURE
    Explanation
    Daniel Bernoulli developed a theory on the relationship of fluid speed and pressure. This theory, known as Bernoulli's principle, states that as the speed of a fluid increases, the pressure exerted by the fluid decreases. Conversely, as the speed of a fluid decreases, the pressure exerted by the fluid increases. This principle is applicable to various fluid systems, including air and water. Bernoulli's principle is widely used in various fields, such as aerodynamics, hydraulics, and fluid dynamics.

    Rate this question:

  • 21. 

    AS FLUID PASSES THROUGH A VENTURI, PRESSURE IS

    • A.

      EQUAL THROUGHOUT THE VENTURI

    • B.

      LOWEST WHERE SPEED IS LOWEST

    • C.

      LOWEST WHERE SPEED IS HIGHEST

    • D.

      A PRODUCT OF FLUID SPEED, TIME, AND DISTANCE

    Correct Answer
    C. LOWEST WHERE SPEED IS HIGHEST
    Explanation
    According to the Venturi effect, as fluid passes through a constricted area of a pipe (such as a Venturi), the speed of the fluid increases while the pressure decreases. This is because the conservation of mass principle states that the mass flow rate of the fluid must remain constant. Therefore, when the fluid speeds up in the constricted area, the pressure decreases. Hence, the pressure is lowest where the speed is highest.

    AS AIR RUSHES PAST AN AIRFOIL, WHAT FORCE IS CREATED?

    • A.

      LIFT

    • B.

      DRAG

    • C.

      SPEED

    • D.

      THRUST

    Correct Answer
    A. LIFT
    Explanation
    As air rushes past an airfoil, the shape of the airfoil creates a pressure difference between the upper and lower surfaces. This pressure difference generates a lifting force called lift. This force acts perpendicular to the direction of the airflow and is responsible for keeping the aircraft in the air. Therefore, the correct answer is lift.

    Rate this question:

  • 23. 

    A MORE STREAMLINED AIRFOIL HAS

    • A.

      LESS DRAG AND LESS LIFT

    • B.

      MORE DRAG AND LESS LIFT

    • C.

      LESS DRAG AND MORE LIFT

    • D.

      MORE DRAG AND MORE LIFT

    Correct Answer
    A. LESS DRAG AND LESS LIFT
    Explanation
    A more streamlined airfoil has less drag and less lift because a streamlined shape reduces the resistance of the air as it flows over the surface of the airfoil. This reduction in drag allows the airfoil to move through the air more efficiently, resulting in less resistance and drag. Additionally, the streamlined shape also reduces the amount of lift generated by the airfoil, as the streamlined shape minimizes the upward force created by the flow of air over the airfoil. Therefore, a more streamlined airfoil has both less drag and less lift.

    WHAT IS THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN LIFT AND THE AOA?

    • A.

      LIFT EQUALS AOA

    • B.

      LIFT INCREASES WITH AOA

    • C.

      LIFT DECREASES WITH AOA

    • D.

      THE TERMS ARE INTERCHANGEABLE

    Correct Answer
    B. LIFT INCREASES WITH AOA
    Explanation
    The correct answer is that lift increases with AOA (Angle of Attack). The angle of attack refers to the angle between the wing's chord line and the oncoming airflow. When the AOA increases, the lift generated by the wing also increases. This is because a higher AOA causes the airflow to be deflected more, resulting in a greater pressure difference between the upper and lower surfaces of the wing, thus generating more lift. Therefore, as the AOA increases, the lift force acting on the wing also increases.

    AT WHAT POINT DO MOST AIRFOILS ENTER A STALL CONDITION?

    • A.

      10

    • B.

      20

    • C.

      30

    • D.

      40

    Correct Answer
    B. 20
    Explanation
    Most airfoils enter a stall condition at a certain angle of attack. When the angle of attack exceeds a critical value, the airflow over the airfoil becomes separated, resulting in a loss of lift and an increase in drag. This is known as a stall condition. The correct answer of 20 suggests that most airfoils enter a stall condition at an angle of attack of 20 degrees.

    • D.

      GRAVITY, LIFT, FRICTION, AND AIRFOIL

    Correct Answer
    B. GRAVITY, LIFT, DRAG, AND AIRFOIL
    Explanation
    The four aerodynamic forces that affect an aircraft in flight are gravity, lift, drag, and airfoil. Gravity is the force that pulls the aircraft downwards, while lift is the force that opposes gravity and allows the aircraft to stay in the air. Drag is the force that opposes the forward motion of the aircraft, and airfoil refers to the shape of the wings that helps generate lift. These forces work together to keep the aircraft in balance and in controlled flight.

    Rate this question:

    WHAT IS THE PRIMARY FORCE AN AIRCRAFT MUST OVERCOME?

    • A.

      LIFT

    • B.

      DRAG

    • C.

      THRUST

    • D.

      GRAVITY

    Correct Answer
    D. GRAVITY
    Explanation
    An aircraft must overcome the force of gravity in order to stay in the air. Gravity is the force that pulls objects towards the center of the Earth, and it acts in the opposite direction of lift. In order for an aircraft to maintain altitude or climb, it must generate enough lift to counteract the force of gravity. If the force of gravity is greater than the lift produced by the aircraft, it will descend or fall. Therefore, gravity is the primary force that an aircraft must overcome.

      THRUST

    • C.

      VENTURI

    • D.

      POWER PLANT

    Correct Answer
    B. THRUST
    Explanation
    Thrust is the force that propels an aircraft forward, and it is generated by the engines. As the engines produce thrust, the aircraft moves through the air, creating a flow of air over its wings. This flow of air is crucial for generating lift, which is the upward force that allows the aircraft to stay airborne. Therefore, thrust is what generates the flow of air over an aircraft's wings.

    • C.

      GRAVITY

    • D.

      PROPULSION

    Correct Answer
    B. DRAG
    Explanation
    Drag is the force that opposes the movement of an aircraft through the air. It is caused by the resistance of the air against the aircraft's forward motion. Drag can be influenced by factors such as the shape of the aircraft, its speed, and the air density. Increasing drag can make it more difficult for the aircraft to move through the air and can affect its performance and fuel efficiency.

    • C.

      PROPULSION

    • D.

      TIME/DISTANCE RATIO

    Correct Answer
    A. DRAG
    Explanation
    In a straight and level flight, lift equals gravity to maintain the aircraft at a constant altitude. Similarly, thrust is equal to drag to maintain a constant speed. Drag is the resistance force that opposes the motion of the aircraft through the air. Therefore, the correct answer is drag.

    Rate this question:

  • 31. 

    TO DECREASE ALTITUDE, YOU WOULD NEED TO

    • C.

      INCREASE DRAG

    • D.

      INCREASE GRAVITY

    Correct Answer
    B. REDUCE THRUST
    Explanation
    To decrease altitude, reducing thrust is necessary. Thrust is the force that propels an aircraft forward and upward. By reducing thrust, the aircraft's engines produce less power, resulting in a decrease in upward force. As a result, the aircraft will descend and decrease its altitude.

    AOA IS MOST IMPORTANT DURING TAKEOFF, LANDING, AND

    • A.

      STRAFING

    • B.

      LOW AIRSPEED

    • C.

      HIGH AIRSPEED

    • D.

      STEEP CLIMBS OR DIVES

    Correct Answer
    B. LOW AIRSPEED
    Explanation
    AOA (Angle of Attack) is most important during takeoff, landing, and low airspeed situations. During takeoff and landing, maintaining the correct AOA is crucial for safe and efficient operations. Low airspeed situations require careful management of AOA to prevent stalling or loss of control. AOA becomes increasingly important at lower speeds as the margin between the critical AOA (stall angle) and the current AOA decreases. Therefore, the correct answer is "LOW AIRSPEED" because it accurately identifies a critical phase of flight where AOA plays a significant role.

      FLAPERONS AND HORIZONTAL STABS

    Correct Answer
    D. FLAPERONS AND HORIZONTAL STABS
    Explanation
    The correct answer is FLAPERONS AND HORIZONTAL STABS. Roll is achieved by the deflection of both the flaperons and the horizontal stabs. Flaperons are control surfaces that combine the functions of both ailerons and flaps, and they are located on the wings. Horizontal stabs, also known as horizontal stabilizers, are fixed surfaces located at the tail of an aircraft. By deflecting both the flaperons and the horizontal stabs, the aircraft can generate a rolling motion around its longitudinal axis.

      LATERAL

    • B.

      VERTICAL

    • C.

      HORIZONTAL

    • D.

      LONGITUDINAL

    Correct Answer
    A. LATERAL
    Explanation
    The lateral axis on an aircraft extends crosswise from wingtip to wingtip. This axis is responsible for controlling the roll motion of the aircraft, allowing it to bank and turn. The other axes, such as the vertical axis, control the yaw motion (nose left or right) and the longitudinal axis controls the pitch motion (nose up or down). The term "lateral" is used to describe the side-to-side movement, which is why it is the correct answer in this context.

    • C.

      EQUAL DEFLECTION OF THE HORIZONTAL STABILIZERS

    • D.

      EQUAL DEFLECTION OF THE FLAPERONS AND HORIZONTAL STABS

    Correct Answer
    A. DEFLECTION OF THE RUDDER
    Explanation
    YAW MOVEMENTS ARE ACHIEVED BY DEFLECTION OF THE RUDDER. The rudder is responsible for controlling the yaw movement of an aircraft. By deflecting the rudder, the pilot can create a yawing motion, which is the side-to-side movement of the aircraft's nose. This movement helps in controlling the direction of the aircraft during flight. The deflection of the rudder creates a force that counteracts any unwanted yawing moments and helps maintain stability and control of the aircraft.

    • D.

      THE RIGHT WINGTIP

    Correct Answer
    B. EITHER WINGTIP
    Explanation
    Aircraft roll is referenced from either wingtip. This means that when an aircraft rolls, it rotates around its longitudinal axis, which is an imaginary line running from the nose to the tail of the aircraft. The roll can be measured or referenced from either the left wingtip or the right wingtip, depending on the specific aircraft and its design. This allows for accurate measurement and control of the aircraft's roll movement during flight.

    • C.

      THE LEFT WINGTIP

    • D.

      THE RIGHT WINGTIP

    Correct Answer
    A. THE NOSE
    Explanation
    Aircraft pitch is referenced from the nose because the nose of an aircraft is the forwardmost part and acts as a reference point for measuring the pitch angle. Pitch refers to the up and down movement of the aircraft's nose in relation to the horizon. By referencing the pitch from the nose, pilots can accurately control the aircraft's attitude and maintain stability during flight.

      THE FLCC HAS NO MEMORY, THE SDR RECORDS FLIGHT EVENT

    Correct Answer
    C. NONVOLATILE
    Explanation
    The F-16 FLCC contains nonvolatile memory. Nonvolatile memory is a type of computer memory that retains its stored data even when the power is turned off or lost. This is in contrast to volatile memory, which requires a continuous power supply to retain its data. Nonvolatile memory is commonly used in electronic devices such as computers, smartphones, and aircraft systems to store important data that needs to be retained even in the absence of power. Therefore, the F-16 FLCC's nonvolatile memory allows it to store and retain critical information even when the power is not available.
