Air Resistance
air resistance

Air resistance is a type of force
it pushes against moving objects.

Because air resistance slows things down it is also a type of friction

Motorsport vehicles are aerodynamically designed into shapes that cut through the air
faster than other shapes would. This streamlining enables the cars to be competitive and travel at very high speeds. Windtunnels are used to test and improve race car designs
