Climb and Descent - Lesson 7
This NASA video segment explores how Newton's laws apply to the takeoff of an airplane. Viewers watch an instructor and engineer at NASA's National Test Pilot School and learn that there are four opposing forces on an airplane, that takeoff is the point at which the lift just starts to offset the weight, and that the distance needed for takeoff can be calculated using an equation derived from Newton's second law. The video clip also discusses the extra drag force created by the rolling friction
