## Graphing the Four Forces

Using the Cartesian coordinate system, future flight experts plot points to determine whether or not an airplane will fly. With the four forces of weight, lift, drag, and thrust represented in different quadrants, your physics learners can discover the proper combination. Though this is a theoretical exercise, it is ideal for helping them to understand how all of the forces interact to allow an airplane to allow aerial navigation.
