How can I simulate air drag due to the atmosphere during a rocket launch in SolidWorks?  I want to simulate a rocket launch, but I would like to know how much air drag will affect my: maximum acceleration, speed, and distance traveled.  Is there a way to accomplish this?  Whenever I simulate my rocket launch it just spins about its center of gravity, like a fired the rocket in space where there is no air drag.
