Drag Co. Of The Dodge Tomahawk

  1. Jun 8, 2004 #1
    A few of us in another forum are talking about if it's possible to even hold onto a motorbike with no fairing or windshield at 300 mph. This is the bike in question, http://www.dodge.com/tomahawk/flash.html [Broken]

    Any idea what the drag co of this bike is, and how many kilograms of air pressure at 300 mph would be on the rider is?


    hah just look how bad that's gonna be at 300 mph!

    I know there are a lot of unknown facts, but lets cut them down.

    area being hit by wind, (air) 24 inches by 24 inches = 576 square inches

    how many kilogrames per square inch would be on you at 300 mph with a wind speed of zero.

    that number * 579

    this about right?
