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

## Kite Lift Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Kite Lift.

**KL = CL * A * d * .5 * V^2**

Variables:

- KL is the Kite Lift (N)
- CL is the coefficient of lift
- A is the surface area (m^2)
- V is the wind velocity (m/s)
- d is the air density (1.229 kg/m^3)

## How to Calculate Kite Lift?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Kite Lift.

- First, determine the coefficient of lift.
- Next, determine the surface area (m^2).
- Next, determine the wind velocity (m/s).
- Next, gather the formula from above = KL = CL * A * d * .5 * V^2.
- Finally, calculate the Kite 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 = .3

surface area (m^2) = 5

wind velocity (m/s) = 10

KL = CL * A * d * .5 * V^2 =** ** ?
