Wind resistance

  1. Feb 14, 2009 #1
    Me and my friend were traveling in the car and started thinking. Say your traveling 60 mph north and there was a head wind traveling 60 mph north. When you stick your hand out the window, do you feel air resistance?
    Thanks for your response,

    I assume you mean a tail wind, and in that case you wouldn't feel a wind. There woudl be a small amount of wind generated by the rotating tires.
