May the Force Be With You: Drag

Students engage in a lesson which explores the drag force on airplanes. They are introduced to the concept of conservation of energy and how it relates to drag. Students explore the relationship between drag and the shape, speed and size of an object. Students see that engineers calculate the drag on an airplane by using information about the size, shape and speed of the airplane.
