Questions and Answers
  • 1. 
    What is the function of a fuselage in an airplane?
    • A. 

      Generates Thrust

    • B. 

      Changes Lift and Drag

    • C. 

      Control Direction of Plane

    • D. 

      Controls Pitch

    • E. 

      None of the above

  • 2. 
    Which part of the plane is considered the most important, and why so?
    • A. 

      Wings, because they are the main generator of the plane's lift.

    • B. 

      Fuselage, because they help to generate kinetic engine for the plane to function

    • C. 

      Tail, because they help to control the airplane's thrust.

    • D. 

      Elevator, because they lessen air resistance for the plane to fly smoothly.

  • 3. 
    What are the two primary forces that pulls the plane down?(Hint:
    • A. 

      Weight, Gravity

    • B. 

      Lift, Thrust

    • C. 

      Potential Energy, Weight

    • D. 

      Gravity, Lift

    • E. 

      None of the above

  • 4. 
    What is air resistance?
    • A. 

      Drag caused by water particles surrounding your object

    • B. 

      Friction caused by surface of object and air particles surrounding it.

    • C. 

      Air particles that collides against object surface causing resistance to drag.

    • D. 

      The opposite motion of thrust.

  • 5. 
    What is the equation for calculating force?
    • A. 

      Force=Weight X Gravity

    • B. 

      Force= Thrust/Weight

    • C. 

      Force=Mass X Acceleration

    • D. 

      Force= (Acceleration/Drag) x Distance

  • 6. 
    Watch the video how to fold the flatbed tumbler and attempt to fold oneAnalysing the flight of the plane and using what we had learnt, explain why the flatbed flies in such a manner.
  • 7. 
    Why is it that a paper airplane does not need a tail as such in a real airplane?
  • 8. 
    Look at the picture below. Do you think paper airplanes of such design are still able to fly? Why?
  • 9. 
    What are the magnitude of thrust affected by? List out each possible variable and explain why.
  • 10. 
    Watch the video below. Observe the phenomenon at work here and explain why it is possible for it to occur.
