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.

- First, determine the coefficient of lift.
- Next, determine the hydrofoil velocity (m/s).
- Next, determine the hydrofoil wing area (m^2).
- Next, gather the formula from above = HL = CL * (997*V^2/2) * A.
- Finally, calculate the Hydrofoil Lift.
- 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 =** ** ?
