Fallacies of popular aerodynamic teachings based on misapplication of Bernoulli's law are revealed, and more appropriate description of wing operation is presented in terms of Newton's laws. Explanation of wing operation is then expanded to include how and why performance is affected by design variables of span, chord, aspect ratio, camber, washout, taper and sweep. Aircraft configuration is also discussed.
