Try to Construct the Optimal Rotation Body (missile)
(Find a Solution of Aerodynamic Newton's Problem)

On this page you can try to construct the optimal generating line for ANP. This applet gives you an opportunity to draw a generatrix and to calculate the drag coefficient Cx for it. Besides, you can see the isometric picture of the constructed "missile".

JAVA not supported!

Using the mouse, draw a line in the black field. To calculate the drag coefficient, click the "Calculate" button or press "C" key. To see 3D picture, click the "ISOMETRY" button or press "S" key. To compare generatrices, press "W" key.
