c. Parasite Drag That drag that is incurred by any portion of the aircraft that does not contribute directly to lift or thrust. d.Skin Friction DragThe frictional resistance incurred when an object is moved through a viscous fluid. e. AirfoilA surfaced body that responds to the relative motion between itself and the air with a useful dynamic reaction. f. Induced drag The drag that acts parallel to the relative wind and is the result of the production of lift.
