What are water and air resistance?
Air and water resistance
Friction occurs when objects move through water or air.
Air resistance is a type of friction between air and another material.
For example, when an aeroplane flies through the air, air particles hit the aeroplane making it more difficult for it to move through the air.
It's the same for an object moving through water. If you go swimming, there is friction between your skin and the water particles. This is known as water resistance.
