What is Terminal Velocity? How Do We Find It? (15:59)
The acceleration and terminal velocity of a dropped object are determined. The motion graphs of dropped coffee filters are demonstrated. Terminal velocity of a baseball is determined. Numerical Modeling is previewed.
This is an AP Physics C: Mechanics topic.
