  • Terminal Velocity

    is stronger then the terminal velocity that is when the object is going at a small velocity. Terminal Velocity When there is equal force acting on an object when falling such as gravity and air resistance at that stage it is called constant speed or terminal velocity. When the object is dropped the force of gravity initially is 100% but as it falls the air resistance becomes stronger making the gravity weaker and at one stage there will be terminal velocity. In some cases due to the mass

  • Upward Initial Velocity

    the displacement y of the stone? | The stone‚ starting with zero velocity at the top of the building‚ is accelerated downward by gravity. | | Reasoning  The upward direction is chosen as the positive direction. The initial velocity v0 of the stone is zero‚ because the stone is dropped from rest. The acceleration due to gravity is negative‚ since it points downward in the negative direction.  Solution | 2). After 3.00 s of free-fall‚ what is the velocity v of the stone? Solution 1). A football game
