A pigeon in flight experiences a force of air resistance given approximately by F=bv2, where V is the flight speed and B is a constant.


A) In terms of SI units, what are the units for the constant "b"?

B) What is the largest possible speed of the pigeon if its maximum power output is "P"?

C) By what factor does the largest possible speed of the pigeon increases if the maximum power is doubled?



**Please help I have several problems like this and need an example to finish the rest. I just cant get it on my own.. Much Thanks
