Calculating wind load is wind speed squared x .00431 x area in sq. ft. A 5 mph wind with a vertical 100 sq. ft. wing is 10.77 lbs. The mass of salt water is around 854 times greater than the mass of air. Can you use the wind formula and multiply by 854? Does the weight of water at different atmospheres change this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
