Hi i would like to ask some theoritical questions


i want to find cd and cda  in solidworks


I have an object  moving to Z axis   in air


i place speed of air   - 40m/s  




from the type  cd = 2Fd / p* V^2 * A


we know :


p = (normal density of air )

v = 40 m/sec


fd = If i place in solidworks at global goals to calculate the normal force in Z axis  ... is tha the Drag force  and so the Fd ??



A = the front aria of my object  (cross section area)
