What is a airfoil? it is a shape of the wing. The top has lower air pressure, but the air is moving faster. The bottom has higher air pressure, but the air is moving slower.
What is drag? The aerodynamic force that acts against an object moving through the air or another fluid. It also acts in the opposite direction of an object.
