A bird of mass 0.8kg hovers upwards by beating the mass of effective area 0.5m^2. (i) what is its upthrust? (ii) estimate the velocity imparted to the air by beating of the wings assuming the density of air at STP to be 1.3kg/m^3.

    upward thrust= weight of bird

    massair*velocity=thrust*deltatime

    massair/time *velocity=thrust

    densityair*volume*velocity

    densityair*area*velocity*time*veloity=thrust*time

    velocity^2=thrust/(densityair*area)

    A hummingbird is able to hover because, as the wings move downwards, they exert a downward force on the air. Newton's third law tells us that the air exerts an equal and opposite force (upwards) on the wings. The average of this force …
