Enter the coefficient of lift, the hydrofoil velocity (m/s), and the hydrofoil wing area (m^2) into the Hydrofoil Lift Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Hydrofoil Lift.

## Hydrofoil Lift Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Hydrofoil Lift.

HL = CL * (997*V^2/2) * A

Variables:

• HL is the Hydrofoil Lift (N)
• CL is the coefficient of lift
• V is the hydrofoil velocity (m/s)
• A is the hydrofoil wing area (m^2)

## How to Calculate Hydrofoil Lift?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Hydrofoil Lift.

1. First, determine the coefficient of lift.
2. Next, determine the hydrofoil velocity (m/s).
3. Next, determine the hydrofoil wing area (m^2).
4. Next, gather the formula from above = HL = CL * (997*V^2/2) * A.
5. Finally, calculate the Hydrofoil Lift.
6. After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

Example Problem:

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

coefficient of lift = .45

hydrofoil velocity (m/s) = .35

hydrofoil wing area (m^2) = 2HL = CL * (997*V^2/2) * A =  ?
