This myth people keep quoting about how bees shouldn't be able to fly is scientifically incorrect — here's why

There is a popular misconception that bees shouldn't be able to fly.

In reality, this is not true, because they can and do fly all the time.

The science behind how they can fly involves the way they move their wings, and the generation of tiny hurricanes that lift them upwards.

When graphed, the triangle looks like this:

The triangle has a height of \(8 \over 5\) and a base of \(16 \over 3\). This means that the area of the triangle is \({{{8 \over 5} * {16 \over 3}} \over 2} = {4 {4 \over 15}}\).
