Details on Air Friction

Thanks to Nathan H. for finding this site.

There is a useful NASA site that gets into air friction a little deeper than we do in class. This link takes you to a description of the drag coefficient (like the constant we use) - see some of the details and other factors that go into the drag term, which leads directly to an understanding of how strong air friction will be on an object. Have fun with it!
