**Zero-lift drag coefficient**— In aerodynamics, the zero lift drag coefficient CD,0 is a dimensionless parameter which relates an aircraft s zero lift drag force to its size, speed, and flying altitude. Mathematically, zero lift drag coefficient is defined as CD,0 = CD − CD,i … Wikipedia**Lift-to-drag ratio**— In aerodynamics, the lift to drag ratio, or L/D ratio ( ell over dee in the US, ell dee in the UK), is the amount of lift generated by a wing or vehicle, divided by the drag it creates by moving through the air. A higher or more favorable L/D… … Wikipedia**Drag coefficient**— In fluid dynamics, the drag coefficient (commonly denoted as: cd, cx or cw) is a dimensionless quantity that is used to quantify the drag or resistance of an object in a fluid environment such as air or water. It is used in the drag equation,… … Wikipedia**Lift coefficient**— The lift coefficient ( or ) is a dimensionless coefficient that relates the lift generated by a lifting body, the dynamic pressure of the fluid flow around the body, and a reference area associated with the body. A lifting body is a foil or a… … Wikipedia**Lift (force)**— For other uses, see Lift. Boeing 747 8F landing A fluid flowing past the surface of a body exerts a surface force on it. Lift is the component of this force that is perpendicular to the … Wikipedia**Drag (physics)**— Shape and flow Form drag Skin friction 0% 100% 10% 90% … Wikipedia**Drag equation**— In fluid dynamics, the drag equation is a practical formula used to calculate the force of drag experienced by an object due to movement through a fully enclosing fluid. The equation is attributed to Lord Rayleigh, who originally used L2 in place … Wikipedia**Aerodynamic drag**— Note This article is currently under renovation, and may, at times, appear disjoint.
