Modern Jet Aircraft Cabin Pressurization Basics

High Speed or the modern aircraft’s are efficient and fuel saving at high altitudes.In order to take advantage of these properties the interior of an aircraft flying at high altitude is pressurized to allow passengers and crew to function normally without the need for additional oxygen. Insufficient O2,( Hypoxia) will give a negative effect to a overall human performance such as nausea, lack of concentration, vomiting, & etc. Up to an altitude of 10000 ft (3.3 km), the air pressure and consequently the amount of oxygen is sufficient for humans to operate without too many problems.

Why The Airflow Has A Greater Velocity At The Upper Surface Of An Aerofoil?

Whenever we ask someone how an aircraft produces lift they are able to answer based on Bernoulli Principle(BP); the airflow above the aerofoil has a higher velocity whereas the airflow on the lower surface of the aerofoil has a lower velocity. Based on BP the higher the velocity the lower the pressure therefore the difference in air pressure produces lift. When a follow-up question is asked why the airflow on the upper surface is great, a majority of us are unable to answer. So today I will be splitting on Why & How the airflow has a greater velocity on
