Principles of Flight

Part 1 – Tumble Glider

Explanation of Bernoulli’s Principle

When air is moving faster than the other air around it the faster moving air creates an area of low pressure which means the slower moving air is at a higher pressure. So if you have fast moving air flowing over top of an object and slow moving air flowing underneath the object the higher pressure from the slow moving air will push the object up because of the lower pressure created by the fast moving air on top.
