Q: The four forces that influence the flight of a paper airplane are thrust, lift, gravity, and drag.
What is each of those forces?
When you throw the plane forward, this is called thrust.
Lift is a force that acts on the wings and helps the plane to move up. Big wings increase lift.
Gravity is the force that pulls the plane down. The right materials can create a lighter aircraft that stays up for longer.
Drag is caused by the tail of the plane and is the opposite of thrust, and it makes the plane slow down.
Paper airplane contests compete for the top place in what two categories?
Distance and Time to float.
