Drag Coefficient - Drag Coefficient is a dimensionless quantity that is used to quantify the drag or resistance of an object in a fluid environment, such as air or water.
Lift Coefficient - The Lift Coefficient is a dimensionless coefficient that relates the lift generated by a lifting body to the fluid density around the body, the fluid velocity and an associated reference area.
Drag Force - (Measured in Newton) - Drag Force is the resisting force experienced by an object moving through a fluid.
Gross Weight - (Measured in Kilogram) - The Gross Weight of the airplane is the weight with full fuel and payload.

What is drag coefficient?

In fluid dynamics, the drag coefficient is a dimensionless quantity that is used to quantify the drag or resistance of an object in a fluid environment, such as air or water. It is used in the drag equation in which a lower drag coefficient indicates the object will have less aerodynamic or hydrodynamic drag.

How to Calculate Coefficient of drag given drag?
