Does anyone know of an equation I may use to calculate the force of moving water? I am trying to theoretically workout the resistive force a vehicle would meet if it were to drive upstream (hydrodynamic drag).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am assuming the main parameters such an equation would include are water depth, water speed, water density and the surface area of the exposed parts of the vehicle such as the portion of its tyres submerged in the stream.

Thanks.
