Im taking AP Physics as well as Calculas but haven't covered the topic of Air Resistance yet. Im trying to figure out what the air resistance would be on a baseball. Could someone help me out?
Much thanks

It turns out that in the real world it's more complicated, but instead of modifying the equation to one more realistic, C_{d} is redefined as a function (often implemented as an interpolated table) that varies with speed for a given medium, such as air, and a specific object (such as a bullet, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/External_ballistics).Roughly:
[itex] F_D = \frac{C_D\rho A v^2}{2} [/itex]
