Quick List For Scientific Laws Used In Aviation

Newton's Laws

  • Newton's First Law - A body at rest tends to remain at rest, and a body in motion tends to remain in uniform motion, unless acted on by some outside force.
  • Newton's Second Law - Acceleration produced in a mass by the addition of a given force is directly proportional t he force, and inversely proportional to the mass.
  • Newton's Third Law - For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.

Boyle's Law

  • When you change the volume of a confined gas that i held at a constant temperatre, the gas pressure also changes.

Charle's Law

  • All gasses expandand contract in direct proportion to any change in absolute temperature.

Dalton's Law

  • When a mixture of two or more gasses which do not combine chemically is placed in a container, each gas expands to fill the container. The total pressure exerted on the container is equal to the sum of the partial pressures.

Pascal's Law

  • When pressure is applied to a confined liquid , the liquid exerts an equal pressure at right angles to the container that encloses it.

Archimedes' Principal

  • When an object is submerged in a liquid, the object displaces a volume of liquid equal to its volume and is supported by a force equal to the weight of the liquid displaced. The force that supports the object is known as the liquid's buoyant force.

Bernoulli's Principle

  • As the velocity of a fluid increases, its internal pressure decreases.

Ohm's Law

  • The current that flows in a circuit is directly proportional to the voltage that causes it, and inversely proportional to the resistance in the circuit.
