wind velocity(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Is there a name for the equation in bold?

E = V3rho,where E is erosivity , V is velocity and rho is air density- thus the erosivity of wind is an exponential function of wind velocity,
i.e. if the wind velocity doubles, the wind is 8X more erodible or, if it triples, the wind is 27 times more erodible- that is why we observe massive wind erosion (dust) with a significant increase in wind speed
