Hello, I am doing a physics project on ski jumping, and I was wondering how to, specifically calculate the lift of normal ski jumper. I have Bernoulliís equation to use but I can not find any of the data to plug into it such as the surface area of a skier in flight (I know it varies a lot but roughly), the change in speed above the ski versus below the ski, and the air density (or an equation to find it). If you could answer any of these questions, it would be greatly appreciated.
