Here's a link talking about it. The doc at the bottom doesn't show the math but he says it doesn't square in this instance, it doubles. However, I found another that showed two different equations for sub sonic (non-turbulent) objects and another for supersonic objects.

Yahoo! Answers - Air resistance... Physics help ?
