What are Aerodynamics and Air Resistance? By: Joshua Vayle
What Is Aerodynamics? • Aerodynamics are how you minimize air resistance • The more aerodynamic something is the less air resistance it will endure • You make something more aerodynamic by changing its 3-Dimentional shape • Some 3-Dimentional shapes are more aerodynamic than others • For example, a sphere is more aerodynamic than a cube
What is Air Resistance? • Air resistance is friction created by the air pushing against things in the air • The faster something is going in the air and less aerodynamic something is the more air resistance it endures • For example air resistance is pushing against a football when you throw it
Questions • I am going to ask 3 questions • I will call on one person to answer each question • Now let’s get started!!!
