Cd/cda force General Question
Hi i would like to ask some theoritical

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 that
the Drag force and so the Fd ??

A = the front aria
