I am working on my semester project and have come across a hitch. I am trying to find the Lift Force of my wing using the following equation(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

F_{L}=C_{L}P A (v^{2}/2)

Where:

F_{L}is Lift Force

C_{L}is Coefficient of Lift (I think)

P is the density of the fluid (Air)

A is the Area

V is Velocity

The only portion I cannot find is Velocity. I cannot, for the life of me, figured out Velocity when given force and mass.

I have a 3.33 lbf and a 27.999g aircraft.

Can someone please help me.

Equation so far:

F_{L}=(.76764)(.076)(56.55)(V^{2}/2)
