## About Air Friction Calculator (Formula)

The Air Friction Calculator is a tool used to calculate the amount of air resistance or drag force that an object experiences as it moves through a fluid such as air.

The calculator uses the formula for air friction, which takes into account the density of the fluid, the speed of the object, the air resistance coefficient, and the cross-sectional area of the object.

The Air Friction Calculator uses the formula:

Fair = 0.5 * p * V^2 * C * A

where:

• Fair is the Air Friction (N)
• p is the density of the fluid (kg/m^3)
• V is the speed of the object (m/s)
• C is the air resistance coefficient
• A is the cross-sectional area (m^2)

This formula calculates the air resistance, or drag force, that an object experiences as it moves through a fluid, such as air. The air resistance depends on the speed of the object, the density of the fluid, the air resistance coefficient, and the cross-sectional area of the object.

The air resistance coefficient represents the object’s shape and surface properties that affect its ability to move through the fluid. The cross-sectional area is the area of the object that is perpendicular to the direction of motion, and it affects how much air the object has to push aside as it moves.
