I came to know that Fixed wing as well as propeller lift equations are same [Am I right]?

Anyways I have question.

What's total lift for fixed wing plane with Wing length of 4 m, 1 m width, Angle of attack = 16 degree, and Wind/plane speed of 6 m/s?

Secondly, what's total lift for Helicopter with propeller diameter of 4 m, width of 1 m and Rpm of 420? Considering angle of attack = 16 degrees?

Any one care to explain in detail?

Surely, I will have follow up questions but let's divide and conquer :)
