Drag Force Equation in Aerodynamics

Drag Force Equation in Aerodynamics

When mechanical engineers design automobiles, aircraft, rockets, and other vehicles, they generally need to know the drag force FD that will resist high speed motion through the air or water . In this section, we will discuss the drag force and a related quantity that is known as the coefficient of drag, denoted by CD. That parameter quantifies […]
