AircraftFrom 1903 to today's 737 aircraft.

The first successful flight was an aircraft made by the two well-known brothers that is known today as the Wright brothers. The two brothers, Wilbur and Orville, made their first successful plane and flight in 1903. The designing of the aircraft that the wright brothers made is below.

(1903) First flight

The first successful flight was an aircraft made by the two well-known brothers, the Wright brothers. The two brothers, Wilbur and Orville, made their first successful plane and flight in 1903. The designing of the aircraft that the wright brothers made is below.

Today's Boeing 737's

The aircraft is made with a 12-horsepowered engine which will keep the aircraft up at a minimum speed of 23 mph. The aircraft was made with the wing on the right to be 4 inches smaller than the wing on the left. This would compensate with the engines weight which will help balance the aircraft to a more successful state. The wings design has a slight droop towards the back of the wing to reduce the effects of crosswind.

Design Benifits

What is an aircraft? An aircraft is a machine that is able to fly by gaining support from the air, or, in general, the atmosphere of a planet.

First flight! (1903)

Manufacturing process of a 737-800 NG

Planes are able to fly by using these 4 basic forces, thrust, drag, weight, and lift. Thrust pushes the aircraft in a forward motion. Lift is the force that pushes the aircraft up. Drag is the aircraft's resistance to go through the air. In order for an aircraft to use these forces as an advantage to putting itself in the air,thrust will have to be equal or greater thandrag. Lift then has to be equal or greater than weight.And the gross weight (Payload + Fuel + Empty Weight = Gross weight) has to be less than or equal to the max weight.

Aerodynamics!

The 737 NG has a 25% more wing area. A 30% greater fuel capacity. And a 22% greater aerodynamic efficiency. In result, the 737 NG flies higher, furthur, and faster.

737 NG's Superior design

What are aircraft made of?

Aircraft often use composite material made of carbon fibers imbedded in epoxy. Compared to wood, steel, or aluminum, it is stronger and stiffer for its weight, improves fuel efficiency, and resists fatigue better.

STEM

In conclusion, we know that all of these facts show that aircrafts are definitely related to STEM. The materials that aircrafts are made of is science. The process of how the aircraft is made is engineering. The aerodynamics, the math in calculating fuel, gross weight, total weight and more is all math. And aircrafts are related to technology because of the technical systems from the cockpit to the cabin to the tail, technology inside an aircraft is every where!
