Bodies of Various Forms. — When a solid body is presented to the wind the front pressure is modified if the face of the body is not plane, and the negative or back pressure is modified if the form of the body interferes with the convergence of the air in the wake. If we put K for the ratio of the pressure on a body to the pressure on a thin plate, of area equal to its projected area on a plane normal to the wind, then we have the values of K in Table 149.

Then T is a point in the line of action of the resultant, the direction of which is given by ae in the vector diagram. Hence the equilibrant EA or the resultant AE is completely determined.
