Air Resistance Constant

  1. Feb 25, 2005 #1
    Hey im just wondering about something, air Resistance is proportional to the velocity in some cases or velocity squared in others.

    dV/dt=kv what is a typical constant for k, i know it varies so lets just say a baseball at sea level(im sure you all can guess why im asking this.... :smile: ) Also is there a way to calculate this "k"...
    any help greatly appreciated thanks!
