What is drag force?

n fluid dynamics, drag (sometimes called air resistance, a type of friction, or fluid resistance, another type of friction or fluid friction) is a force acting opposite to the relative motion of any object moving with respect to a surrounding fluid. This can exist between two fluid layers (or surfaces) or a fluid and a solid surface

How to Calculate Drag force?

Drag force calculator uses Drag Force=Drag Coefficient*Dynamic Pressure*Area to calculate the Drag Force, The Drag force formula is defined as product of drag coefficient, dynamic pressure and reference area of the body. Drag Force and is denoted by FD symbol.

Here is how the Drag force calculation can be explained with given input values -> 50000 = 100*10*50.

FAQ

What is Drag force?
The Drag force formula is defined as product of drag coefficient, dynamic pressure and reference area of the body and is represented as FDD*Pdynamic*A or Drag Force=Drag Coefficient*Dynamic Pressure*Area. 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, Dynamic Pressure is simply a convenient name for the quantity which represents the decrease in the pressure due to the velocity of the fluid and The area is the amount of two-dimensional space taken up by an object.
How to calculate Drag force?
