Lecture no. 4 from the course: Understanding the Misconceptions of Science
Taught by Professor Don Lincoln | 28 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

This lecture overturns the (often-very-wrong) way flight is taught in introductory physics classes and focuses on two relevant subjects involved in flight: air circulation and how the wing pushes air downward.
