NASA RESOURCE DRIVEN INSTRUCTION: ARCHIMEDES PRINCIPLE

Logo for NASA RESOURCE DRIVEN INSTRUCTION: ARCHIMEDES PRINCIPLE
There are two types of flying machines that allow for lift to overcome gravity. The first type, called the aerodynamic machines such as helicopters and airplanes, rely on thrust and forward speed to produce lift. The second type, aerostatic machines, such as hot air balloons and lighter than air-type craft, rely on the differences in air density for lift. This lesson is concerned with the second type, the type that are dependent on buoyancy.
