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.

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

surface area (m^2) = 5

wind velocity (m/s) = 10

KL = CL * A * d * .5 * V^2 =  ?
