|Example of aerodynamic car|
Most of us don't think of air or wind as a wall. At low speeds and on days when it's not very windy outside, it's hard to notice the way air interacts with our vehicles. But at high speeds, and on exceptionally windy days, air resistance (the forces acted upon a moving object by the air -- also defined as drag) has a tremendous effect on the way a car accelerates, handles and achieves fuel mileage.This where the science of aerodynamics comes into play.
