Why drag force doesn't Depend on the mass of the Object?
That's the air density, not the object's density.A Lazy Shisno said:The drag equation suggests it's the object's density, cross-sectional area, and shape that affects the force acting on it by the air.
Sorry, yes, you're right. I'm not sure how I forgot that.FactChecker said:That's the air density, not the object's density.

Drag force is a type of force that opposes the motion of an object through a fluid (such as air or water).
Drag force can slow down the motion of an object or even bring it to a complete stop.
No, an object's mass does not directly affect the drag force it experiences. Drag force is dependent on the object's shape, velocity, and the properties of the fluid it is moving through.
Drag force is a result of the interaction between the object and the fluid it is moving through. The mass of the object does not play a significant role in this interaction.
Yes, drag force can be reduced or eliminated by changing the shape of the object, reducing its velocity, or by changing the properties of the fluid it is moving through.
