Hi, I'm working on some simple aerodynamics for a game. Are there any generic, but fairly accurate, formulas for calculating the lifting force (N) required for aircrafts that use aerofoils, and another for calculating the amount of air that needs to be displaced (m^3/s) for aircrafts that in one way or another make use of hovering, by displacing air downwards.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
