Fluid Resistance (Drag)
Background image of page 4
Fluid resistance Direction? Opposes relative motion of fluid and object. Magnitude? Will depend on the velocity, shape of the body, properties of the fluid Observation: at low speed it is proportional to v, at high speed, it is proportional to v 2

Drag forces Oppose motion of an object through fluid (liquid or gas) 2 approximate force laws: 1. Linear drag (low speeds, viscous fluids) 2. Quadratic drag (high speeds, low viscosity fluids (gases) f d v (rel. to fluid) f d = bv f d = Dv 2

For fast things moving through air, use the quadratic drag formula Airplanes, raindrops, cars at high speed. .
