Exploring Drag and Physics — for Kids!
How did the Wright Brothers’ Wright Flyer airplane lift off the ground in 1903? How does a streamlined sports car go faster than a bulky truck? This is due to a physics phenomenon called “drag” or “drag force” where air particles push against the front of objects, slowing them down. From creating airplane simulations to modeling race cars, Ansys simulation technology is used worldwide to understand drag and create very cool products. Watch this fun video — ideal for grade schoolers (K – 7th grade) — to discover how drag works.
