THE EFFECT OF COMBINING TWO PAPER PLANE MODELS ON THE FLIGHT OF THE NEW MODEL A STUDY ON THE CHANGE IN FLIGHT LENGTH OF A PAPER PLANE
Keywords:ring plane, Laminar Flow, Coanda Effect, flight method
The present study includes folding each of the two paper planes and understanding their aerodynamics and whether these effects have any change on their individual flight. To take it forward, I conducted an experiment wherein these two paper planes namely the ring plane shaped like a flying tube and the convectional paper plane are merged together thereby increasing the efficiency of the flight. Together, the paper planes merge the two concepts of Laminar Flow and increase in the lift due to the Coanda Effect. After the completion of this experiment, the combination of aerodynamic principles leads to an improvement in the flight distance. The measurement was caried out by determining the line of best fit and then comparing the results with it. To conclude, the elimination of the useless forces using different methods helps to increase the flight method.
