Terminal Velocity (1 of 3)

Terminal Velocity
The velocity at which the driving forces are cancelled out by the resistive forces.  Terminal velocity depends a great deal upon the shape of the object that is facing the direction it is moving. Once an object has reached terminal velocity, the object is not accelerating (a=0), therefore it is not speeding up or slowing down. It is a constant velocity unless the driving forces or the resistive forces change.   Typically, Terminal Velocity is only a possibility when you are dealing ...
