    I have a rigidbody with following characteristics:

    Length = 140 m
    Width = 23 m
    Height = 5 m
    Weight = 11790000 kg

    The fluid density is 1025 kg/m^3

    Angluar velocity in experiment is 2 rad/sec (y-axis)

    Rigidbody is fully submerged in experiment.

    I would like to know what formulation to use to calculate the angular drag force in rad/sec for this rigidbody using the date listed above.

    Any help with this would be highly appreciated!
