## Ballistic Coefficient formula

The formula to calculate Ballistic Coefficient (\(B\)) given the projectile mass (\(m\)), drag coefficient (\(C\)), and area (\(A\)) is:

\[ B = \frac{m}{{C \times A}} \]**Variable Definitions:**

- \( B \) - Ballistic Coefficient (kg/m²)
- \( m \) - Projectile Mass (kg)
- \( C \) - Drag Coefficient
- \( A \) - Projectile Area (m²)

Find the Ballistic Coefficient (\(B\)) for a projectile with a mass (\(m\)) of 0.02 kg, drag coefficient (\(C\)) of 0.3, and area (\(A\)) of 0.001 m².

**Answer:**

Using the Ballistic Coefficient formula:

\[ B = \frac{0.02}{{0.3 \times 0.001}} \]Therefore, the Ballistic Coefficient is \( \approx 66.67 \, \text{kg/m²} \).
