How does air resistance affect the acceleration of a falling object-How does air resistance affect the acceleration of a falling object?

It reduces the acceleration of the falling object due to friction.


How does air resistance affect a falling object?

It counteracts the force of gravity and slows the decent of the object at a rate proportional to the object's velocity.


How does gravity affect the velocity of a falling object?

Gravity accelerates a falling object.


In free fall when the air resistance is equal to the weight of the falling object we say that the object has reached velocity.?

When air resistance balances the weight of an object that is falling the velocity?

The velocity is called the "terminal" velocity.


How does gravity effect a falling object?

If there is no air resistance, gravity will accelerate the falling object, that is, it will change its velocity.


Is the highest velocity that will be reached by a falling object maximum velocity?

Terminal velocity is the velocity at which a falling body reaches constant velocity due to air resistance.


What factors affect air resistance?

Fluid density, relative velocity, and object shape affect air resistance.


What two principal factors affect the force of air resistance on a falling object?

The object's velocity and cross sectional area.


How does air ir resistance affect the accerleration of a falling object?

It slows the acceleration - possibly down to zero @ "terminal velocity".


What is critical velocity?

Critical velocity is the speed that a falling object reaches when gravity and air resistance equalize on the object.


What would you call it when air resistance the force of gravity and a falling object stops accelerating?

When a falling object stops accelerating but is falling at a constant velocity, it is called terminal velocity.


Is terminal velocity the constant velocity of a falling object when the force of air resistance equals the force of gravity?

Terminal velocity is the velocity of a falling object once it has become constant, so they are the same thing.


What causes a falling object to reach terminal velocity?

Its the air resistance that causes the free falling body to reach its terminal velocity


What type of forces would affect something falling down through the air?

The forces that affect the rate of a falling object are Gravity and Air Resistance. Gravity affects the speed and the velocity of the object by speeding it up as it falls closer to the earth, and Air resistance works against the object pushing against it.


When equals the force of gravity on a falling object the object reaches terminal velocity?

Wind resistance.
