## Homework Statement

I have to determine the sum and difference of the two coefficients of drag between two individual items that make a torque AUT. I'm given the diameter of each bottle (6.35 cm), wind velocity (14.3 m/s), the forces of the lift load cells (+0.0741 N, -0.0741 N), and the force of the drag load cell (0.846 N). Here is an image for clarification.

## Homework Equations

where:

Fd is the drag force, which is by definition the force component in the direction of the flow velocity

ρ

u

A

## The Attempt at a Solution

I’m pretty sure i found the sum of the drag coefficients since I know the force of the load cell, the velcity, cross area, and density of air (my drag coefficient sum was 2.18), but I don’t know if I’m supposed to now used the force of the lift load cell since the torque is the radius times the perpendicular force. Thanks in advance.

Edited for clarity.
