do some web research on the concept of the force that the wind exerts on objects. Then, construct an engaging 3-paragraph initial post that addresses the following points:

· Paragraph 1:  Explain, in words, the mathematical relationship between the force of the wind and the wind speed as discussed in the Focus Topic, emphasizing the significance of the “squared” part of the relationship.

· Paragraph 2:  Based on the definition of pressure (P) as force (F) per unit area (A), or P = F/A, explain the significance of area to the force that the wind exerts on an object. Give a practical example that illustrates this concept. (graphics will add greatly to the discussion here)

· Paragraph 3:  You have TWO options for this paragraph:  1) explain the relevance of the above concept to aircraft in flight, OR 2) give us “your take” on the relevance and importance of the above concept from your own perspective - personal points of view or related experiences, for example.
