P5_5 Drag on Dragons

Sam Waters, Thomas J Benham, Ben Foxcroft, Chris J.C. Dodds


By comparison of the lift and drag forces of two dragons, one fat with a supplementary hydrogen source and one thin without, we have calculated the turning point velocity in which it is more beneficial to be either size. The wind velocity, or turning point velocity, was found to be 14.9 ms-1; below this value the fat dragon will be more advantageous and, conversely above, the thin dragon.
