Question Description

In a two-page paper, identify the classical physics principles contained within the following scenario. Explain how these principals connect to work done by Galileo or Newton. Finally, consider the different fields in which Galileo and Newton did research, and give an example of one of these fields in use in your life. For instance, Newton developed the field of optics. If you wear glasses or contact lenses, you are using Newton's physical optics theories every day. Aside from glasses or contacts, how do the theories of Newton or Galileo affect you in your daily life?


Mandy took a trip to Rome, Italy. She gazed out over the open ocean 20,000 feet below as her airplane began its descent to her final destination. She could watch the Sun setting in the west. Over the Eastern horizon peeked a full moon, just rising, displaying its cratered face. As the plane neared the ground, Mandy could not help but think that she was in a giant metal object hurtling through the sky. Without the specific shape of its wings, the plane would fall to the ground no differently than a large metal projectile.

From Mandy’s trip to Rome, it becomes possible to elaborate on various physics
concepts. The wings of the airplane are shaped in a manner which ensures the air moves with
speed on the top side of the wing. When air moves rapidly, the air pressure reduces significantly.
Henceforth, the pressure on the top of the wing is little compared to the pressure on the bottom
side of the wing. The distinction in pressure develops a force on the airplane wing which lifts
the wing up in the air (Giancoli,2016).
To comprehend further how the plane is able to move in the air it becomes possible to
integrate the three laws of motion progressed by Sir Isaac Newton in the year 1665. These laws
aid in the clarification of how the airplanes fly. First of all, if a...
