This is a report on the basic guidelines that are used in preparing a delta paper plane. All
the steps with their geometric measurements are outlined. The origin of paper plane and the
reason behind its invention is discussed in this lab report. The report also contains how the paper
plane is used in designing powered aircrafts.
Paper plane traces their origin in the Ancient China. Japan also takes credit in the
development of the paper plane. The practice of making paper plane started in the years 500
BCE when the manufacture of paper became widespread. The making of paper plane became
dominant and man appreciated all the scientific principles like drag that made it a success. All
the designs involving larger powered aircrafts involves a deep understanding of the paper plane.
A key application of paper plane model is by the Wright brothers who designed powered
aircrafts in the years 1899 and 1903. Through the paper plane model, they were able to
understand all the forces which influenced the movement of planes in the air. The model has
been of great importance in the development of other bodies such as kites and gingers. The
design has progressively been designed differently by various people. It has continued to be a
useful tool in the aircraft industry. As of late, paper demonstrate flying paper plane have
increased incredible modernity, and high flight execution far expelled from their origami
sources, but still origami airplane have increased numerous new and energizing plans throughout
the years, and increased much regarding flight execution.
In preparation of a good paper plane, there are various materials and equipment that are
needed. These materials are:
A pair of scissors, pencil, sharpener, 30cm ruler and tape.
1 piece of 8.5 inch length and 11 inch width paper.
Successful designing and making of a paper plane involves the following steps.
1. The folding of width and corner of the paper. This step involves...
