Shape plays a role in air resistance because some shapes block air flows causing a resistance. Shape can also cause resistance if it allows too much air to vent one way or the other.

Fluid density, relative velocity, and object shape affect air resistance.

Speed, shape and frontal cross-section. Viscosity, texture, friction, gravity, velocity, size, and shape can all affect air resistance.

the amount of air resistance on an object depends on the size, shape, and speed of the object. Air resistance is the force that opposes the motion of objects through air.

size/shape- amount of air resistance weight - amount of gravity :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Air resistance is affected by surface area and Shape

In general, a greater surface area means there will be more air resistance. However, the exact shape may also matter - air resistance doesn't depend solely on the amount of surface.In general, a greater surface area means there will be more air resistance.

Not "affect"; the word is "effect" in this case. Yes, air resistance has an effect on projectiles.

Air resistance is proportional to the cube of speed.

air resistance can be reduced by making the object that takes the air resistance stremlined. this means to make the object into a certain shape that alowes air to flow over the same is done in water but with a different shape

The main factors is the speed, shape and the cross-sectional area of the object.

What type of friction is air resistance?fluid friction. Air resistance is fluid friction. Air resistance occurs between the surface of a falling object and the air that surrounds it. Rolling friction occurs when a rounded surface moves over a solid and sliding friction occurs when a solid moves over another solid. Static friction occurs when a solid touches another solid but there is no movement.What two factors affect air resistance?size and shape. Size and shape are the two factors that affect air resistance. Air resistance works with surface area, so the more surface area, the more air resistance. Think about when you drop two pieces of paper: one crumpled and one flat. The crumpled one falls faster because there is less air resistance acting on the paper.

The main aspects that affect the amount of air resistance against a particular object are the weight of the object and the speed that it is travelling at. The other important aspect is the shape of the surface area in the direction the object is falling.

Air resistance depends on an object's size, shape, density, and surface area.

Not directly. Air resistance depends on an object's shape and type of surface.

Air resistance slows you down which is why ski racers wear tight suits to minimize air resistance.

The shape of the vehicle affects the amount of drag the vehicle produces. Drag being resistance to forward motion due to air mass resistance. The more air that vehicle has to move, the more drag it produces, and the less efficiently it will move.

Air resistance depends mainly on an object's shape, not so much on the material.
