In fluid dynamics, the drag coefficient is a dimensionless quantity that is used to quantify the drag or resistance of an object in a fluid environment such as air or water. it is used in the drag equation, where a lower drag coefficient indicates the object will have less aerodynamic or hydrodynamic drag. the drag coefficient is always associated with a particular surface area.
