Drag power of an aircraft is achieved by multiplying drag force with true airspeed.

A. True

B. False

The question was posed to me in an interview for internship.

I need to ask this question from Minimum Power Speed topic in division Aircraft Force Systems and the Equations of Motion of Aircraft Performance

Correct option is A. True

Easy explanation: Drag power of an aircraft is achieved by multiplying drag force with true airspeed. The formula for drap power is given as P\(\sqrt{\sigma}\)=DVe=YVe^3+\(\frac{ZW^2}{V_e}\) where Y is a constant, Ve is velocity, W is weight, Z is constant and D is total drag and P is power.
