Paper Airplane Project Report
By Clark and Arthur, 10E
I - Situation or Background of the Problem
The forces that allow a paper plane to fly are the same ones that apply to real airplanes. A force is something that pushes or pulls on something else. When you throw a paper plane in the air, you are giving the plane a push to move forward. That push is a type of force called thrust. While the plane is flying forward, air moving over and under the wings is providing an upward lift force on the plane. At the same time, air pushing back against the plane is slowing it down, creating a drag force. The weight of the paper plane also affects its flight, as gravity pulls it down toward Earth. All of these forces (thrust, lift, drag and gravity) affect how well a given paper plane's voyage goes.
II - Statement of the Problem
Design and build a paper plane that can fly better than others.
The paper plane should fly at least a distance of 15 meters.
It should be strong, durable and finished to a high standard.
• It must be possible to manufacture the device in the classroom.
• The device should be aesthetically pleasing and well presented.
III – Research
Arthur’s classmate in his primary school recommended this kind of paper airplane to him when he was 9 years old.
IV - Materials (and Life Cycle Analysis)
The paper airplane can be used for draft after finishing the experiment. Because A4 papers are clean but there are some kink mark on it, in that case it can be used for printing.
V – Design (drawings and dimensions)
VI – Build and test (report results)
VII – Evaluate and redesign (repeat III – VI)
The more things that can help the airplane to fly we add, the longer displacement the plane can fly.
