fd =1/2 pv2 cd A

Or possibly simply... 0.47

    Is this equation still relevant in respect to how to solve a problem like a ladyboy? And does that mean given there preference they also are drag coefficient?

    I no longer live in an ivory tower, these days it's vintage white :shock:

    You need to check your working. What are you using for fd, p and A?

    Is your cd dimensionless?

    It is spherical so it is 0.47 :D

    "Co-efficient of lift x 1/2 air density x the velocity squared x the plan area of the wing. Coefficient= angle of attack and shape of the aerofoil. Drag is CD1/2pV2S."

    I cannot think why T47b wants to dress up as a woman and strap himself to a wing of some description, whilst singing 'Life is a Cabaret'.
