The drag coefficient tells you how much drag affects an object moving in a fluid. A higher drag coefficient means that the drag force is larger, which’ll slow down an object more. Lower drag darts will have more range and travel faster. What’s the drag coefficient of a Nerf dart? Many tests have been done […]
