Air resistance is neither good nor bad, it is simply a factor.

Air resistance costs us in terms of performance, a car with high wind resistance gets lower mileage than one with less; but without air resistance planes would not fly at all.

Air resistance is a type of friction, and so it will always slow an object in comparison to if there never was air resistance.


How molecules in the air cause air resistance?


air resistance is the push when there is a lot air surface.


Yes, air resistance is on everything where there is air.


If there is no air resistance, they will fall faster and faster.If there is air resistance, they will eventually approach a "terminal velocity", a maximum speed, at which the downward pull of Earth is counteracted by the backward pull of air resistance.If there is no air resistance, they will fall faster and faster.If there is air resistance, they will eventually approach a "terminal velocity", a maximum speed, at which the downward pull of Earth is counteracted by the backward pull of air resistance.If there is no air resistance, they will fall faster and faster.If there is air resistance, they will eventually approach a "terminal velocity", a maximum speed, at which the downward pull of Earth is counteracted by the backward pull of air resistance.If there is no air resistance, they will fall faster and faster.If there is air resistance, they will eventually approach a "terminal velocity", a maximum speed, at which the downward pull of Earth is counteracted by the backward pull of air resistance.

Air resistance is fluid friction!


Resistance between the air and an object



Air resistance is an example of friction.



No, there isn't any air resistance on the moon


Air- resistance is basically a type of friction between an object and the air


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


resistance is useful when a plane is flying in the air, air resistance. it is also useful when a boat is floating on water, water resistance.


Air resistance depends on the velocity of the moving object.


the friction in air resistance is called fluid friction.


Air resistance is proportional to the cube of speed.


Air resistance is affected by surface area and Shape


the skydiver felt air resistance as he/she was falling


The resistance do obstruct the object. The object always travel slower with air resistance. Air resistance is higher with velocity and the object falling through air would have a limited velocity that it can't go through.


Air resistance is air itself slowing down an object travelling through it.


Inside of vacuums, there is no air. In these spaces, you can create an environment, where there is little/no air resistance.
