Motion?

The act or process of changing place or position; motion is movement.

1

Basic fundamental of aviation?

Motion

2

How many types of motion pertaining to flight are?

Acceleration
Speed
Velocity

3

The quickness or speed of an object in a given time and direction?

Velocity

4

Acceleration?

The rate of change of the speed and or velocity if matter with time.

5

Speed?

The rate of movement in terms if distance measured in an allotted amount of time.

6

Laws of motion?

Newtons 1st Law
Newtons 2nd Law
Newtons 3rd Law
Bernouli's Principle

7

Newton's 1st Law?

An object at rest will remain at rest, or an object in motion will continue in motion at the same speed and in the same direction, until acted upon by an outside force.(inertia)

8

Newton's Third Law?

(Action and reaction) for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction

9

Newton's Second Law?

(Force) if an object moving with uniform speed is acted upon by external forces, the change if motion, or acceleration, will be directly proportional to the amount of force and inversely proportional to the mass of the object being moved.

10

Bernoulli's Principle?

When a fluid flowing through a tube reaches a construction or narrowing if the tube, the speed of the fluid passing through the constriction is increased and it's pressure decreased.

11

Lift?

The force that acts, in an upward direction, to support the aircraft in the air. Must be greater than or equal to weight if flight is to be sustained.

12

Weight?

The force of gravity acting downward on the aircraft and everything on the aircraft.

13

Drag?

The forces that tends to hold the aircraft back. Caused by disruption of air about the wings, fuselage or body, and all protruding objects on the aircraft.

14

Thrust?

The force developed by the aircraft a engine, and it acts in a forward direction

15

Longitudinal axis?

An imaginary reference line running down the center of the aircraft between the nose and tail.

16

Lateral axis?

An imaginary reference line running parallel to the wings.

17

Vertical axis?

An imaginary line running from top to bottom of the aircraft

18

Ailerons?

Roll longitudinal

19

Elevators?

Pitch lateral

20

Rudder

Yaw vertical

21

Cyclic stick?

(Roll/pitch) tilts the plane and changes direction of lift

22

Tail rotor?

(Yaw) counteracts torque of main rotor by increasing or decreasing the amount of horizontal thrust the tail rotor produces.

23

Creates lift by lengthening the top section of the wing resulting in maximum lift to reduce takeoff runs and landing roll out?

Flap (leading/trailing edge)

24

Used to decrease wing lift by destroying the smooth flow of air over the wing surface, creates a more predictable landing glides cope?

Spoiler

25

Hinged or movable control surfaces used for reducing the speed if the aircraft. Location varies on models of aircraft?

Speed brakes

26

Movable control surfaces attached to the leading edge of the wing?

Slats

27

Lift may be changed ________ by increasing the angle of attack or pitch of the rotor blades?

Collectively

28

Angle at which the airfield or fuselage meets a flow of air?

Angle of attack (AoA)

29

AoA is defined as?

The area between the chord line of the wing and the relative wind.
