Simple drag coefficient question
 
After you get the solution from fluent and go results > reports > forces and then plug in the x- and y-velocity components under set up, which number that the software spits out is the drag coeffecient?

you don't have to put the values of velocity components instead put the values of cos and sine components of the angle at which you are performing your analysis. The last most number on the right side is the coefficient of drag.
