FAQ

What is Zero-lift drag coefficient for minimum power required?
The Zero-lift drag coefficient for minimum power required in steady, level flight is one-third of the coefficient of drag due to lift and is represented as CD,0=CD,i/3 or Zero-lift drag coefficient=Coefficient of drag due to lift/3. The Coefficient of drag due to lift is the sum of the coefficients of induced drag and the increment in parasite drag due to the angle of attack different from the zero-lift angle of attack.
