Aeordynamics, drag, wind resistance - table with Cw values for objects

    [SOLVED] Aeordynamics, drag, wind resistance - table with Cw values for objects

    Hello

    I am not using the standard template as this is a minor question in relation to my assignment, and not the actual questions from the assignment itself.

    I am calculating the curve of a projectile fired at an angle. This is then creating a curve until it hits the ground. I need to find a tabel with Cw values for different shapes of the objects being fired. By Cw value I mean the value that determines the aerodynamic capabilities of the object, like the difference between a race car and a bus. This is not to be confused with the shadowarea of the object. Can anyone provide me with a link to such a table?

    (I apoligize for my bad english, it is not my primary language)

    Kent
