How much turbulence do you leave behind

How to Get There

  • Today's streamlined cars are designed within very specific principles. Each area of a vehicle contributes to the drag of the vehicle.
  • Frontal Area: This contributes up to 12% of the total drag. Which explains in part why small cars get better mileage than vans. A sheet a plywood held at an angle to horizontal will have less drag than one held vertically.
  • Undercarriage: About 14% of the drag. This is why race cars are smooth underneath.
  • Wheel wells: Shielded wheel wells make a difference. They can contribute up to 21% of a vehicle's drag. This is why the really high speed vehicles have covered wheel wells. (Bonneville salt flats racers)
  • Rear end: The biggest portion of drag comes from the rear end, up to 33%. Any turbulence here, increases the effort it takes to pull the vehicle through the air. This is why airplanes and submarines have pointed tails. Less turbulence.
  • How much turbulence do you leave as you go through life?

I Thessalonians 5:12-15 Live at peace, as much as it depends on you, with all men. There will be people around us who are trouble makes, let them be, be wary of them. Don't cause them trouble.

Things to Watch For

What helps the most? Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.
