Formulas in Zwift

Hi guys,
i’m writing a work for school about Zwift and on of the topics in this written work is the formulas you need in Zwift. Like how you calculate the gradient of the route and simulate this, how you calculate the rolling resistance, how you calculate the slipstream or lee or how you calculate the aerodynamics? I would be glad and grateful if you could give me an answer because i’ve read the hole Zwift-Document and didn’t found some mathematics formulas or something. (if you have the formulas please write it down)
Thank you all for your help :wink:

Good morning Merinda,

I doubt that Zwift will make there formulas public. There a a few resources on the internet that will give you a good idea of how the formula would look like.
