Any object moving inside or through a fluid will experience a force. This force may be along the direction of the motion or perpendicular or at a certain angle to the motion of that object inside the fluid. If the direction is only along the motion, it is called drag. Perpendicular force is generally termed as lift. … Aerodynamics and Propulsion Principles…
