    Welcome to PF.
    It will depend on the shape and speed of the vehicle, and the characteristics of the object and the launch trajectory.
    If you carry out the practical experiment you may be charged with littering.
    Have you considered building a wind tunnel ?
    Consider also; http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Finite_element_method
