Dear All, I need your help with a present problem -(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am a student pilot, and want to see the derivation for the dynamic pressure formula - which is 1/2PV^2 where P - Density, V-Velocity

I was asked an interesting question by my a fellow student: Why is dynamic pressure directly proportional to v^2 and not just V?

Kindly explain to me these points.

Thank you,

~ Aditya.
