The same problem?

  1. Oct 10, 2007 #1
    Hi all,

    The drag of a stationary obstacle due to incoming current versus the drag of the same obstacle that moves in a stationary (but the same) medium. Will these two result in a same drag?

    best regards,

    Absolutely, provided that the dimension of the current is as big as the stationary medium.
