In your own words, how is lift created with an airfoil?

Report as

Lift is determined by the way the air flows around an aerodynamic object and the speed that it flows. Airfoils can either lift up OR press down. From what i understand airfoils on the backs of cars are actually designed to push the car down into the road in order to increase traction and speed.
