When the wing surface increases the lift increases. By modifying the surface, the plane or the sailboat changes lift, depending on the relative velocity of the fluid.
The wing area is a parameter of the lift.
- Lift in Newtons
- CL is the lift coefficient, it is determined experimentally in a wind tunnel or with numerical methods
- p is the density of the fluid KG/m3
- S wing surface m²
- v relative velocity of the fluid m/s
