How will drag force and air resistance affect an object in circular motion in the air?

• Physics -

I will be happy to critique your thinking.

• Physics -

My view is that both drag force and air resistance would slow down the object in the circular motion and both drag force and air resistance would increase in proportion to the speed of the circular moving object.

But I am not certain which direction would these forces act upon the moving object.
