Flight Physics for Beginners: Simple Examples of Applying Newton's Laws
Spathopoulos, Vassilis
Physics Teacher, v49 n6 p373-376 Sep 2011
Educators are constantly trying to find new ways of motivating their students. In subjects such as mechanics with a strong mathematical component, it is particularly important to devise real-life examples that can increase interest and student excitement. Aircraft flight is a topic that most young people find exciting. It therefore would seem reasonable to incorporate applications from the world of flight into an introductory physics course.
