Homework Help: Can't figure this one out

  1. Feb 12, 2008 #1
    can't figure this one out!!

    does any body know why a motorcycle is more aerodynamically affected than a truck??
    really thought hard about it but just can't figure it out!
    is it because of the two tyres??

    Thanx

    Air resistance depends on the cross section. Rolling resistance depends on mass
