Non-Conventional Approaches to Generating Lift.General Physical Aspects
Mark Krinker
City College of Technology, Brooklyn, NY, 11201
The paper considers mechanisms of developing lift, based on controlledmolecular collisions of air-composing molecules. There are two groups of therelated approaches: variation of number of collisions between molecules and awall, and control of elasticity of molecular collisions with the wall. The firstgroup realizes specific properties of air in that it pressure depends ontemperature; as well as employing electric field-controlled pressure of polarvapor and introduction the conception of a wing-the-accelerator. Anothergroup converts elastic collisions of molecules with the wall into inelastic ones bymeans of molecular-photon interaction.Nomenclature

I. IntroductionP
hysical base of existing aerospace technology is considerably reduced to classicalconcepts of a lift theory and a jet propulsion. However, both the basics have theirintrinsic limitations, which slow new qualitative achievements in the aerospacetechnology.Many new approaches in area of air- and spacecrafts propulsion were theoreticallydeveloped on a base of new concepts, which came to physics during past few decades.Some of them remain controversial, but arguments around them stimulate evolution of the technology.These are Energy of Vacuum, Electromagnetic Control of Gravitation
, Plasma MagnetoHydrodynamics Propulsion, Elecrtokinetic Propulsion
and others.This article deals with considering non-conventional ways of generating lift proposedby the author. Unlike recited above, it considers physical processes associated with liftrather than the thrust and is focused on physical processes of interacting gas moleculeswith a wall.
II. Generating Lift Based on Controlled Molecular Collisions
Physical processes described by Bernoulli’s equation, Eq.1, underlie the lift of aconventional airplane wing.

is a static pressure.Traditional approach to understand generating lift can be complimented by analyzingprocesses of interaction of gas molecules with an arbitrary surface.Implying an airplane wing, the lift force is a result of difference of static pressures Pbetween both sides of the wing. For the airplane wing said difference is achieved due to atotal action of an air circulation around the wing superimposed on a counter flow.Generally, no mater how this difference is achieved. Technically, the lift can bestimulated by other means like spinning surface in a flow, -Magnus Effect in Flettner’srotors, or something else.Actually, Bernoulli’s equation represents control of the static pressure by means of variation of acts of chaotic collisions between gas molecules and a wall (an airplanewing):
the more horizontal component of velocities of the molecules, the less chancesthey have to experience collisions with a horizontal wall. Consequently, totalmomentum released by the collisions, will be reduced. So does the static pressure P.
3Are there alternative ways to control a number of collisions between chaotic gasmolecules and a wall, other than conventional varying horizontal velocity?In other words, we are dealing with controlling gas entropy and other thermodynamicpotentials to control chaotic collision of molecules, having mass

Therefore, there are two basic ways of controlling lift by means of moleculardynamics:1.
variation of number of collisions between molecules of gas and a wall, and;2.
control of elasticity of molecular collisions with the wall.III. Energy Pump
This approach can be referred to the first group.Generally, according to Dalton’s law for the mix of gases (air and others), totalpressure is a sum of partial pressures
