This is false. The answer is that mass and distance affect the gravitational attraction between objects. Air resistance has no effect on this.

Air resistance will determine the "terminal volocity" based on surface area

the amount of air resistance on an object depends on the size, shape, and speed of the object. Air resistance is the force that opposes the motion of objects through air.

Resistance (newtons) = velocity( in m/s)2 * drag coefficient of the object

Mass certainly affects the gravitational attraction between objects; air resistance doesn't.

terminal velocity is the final maximum velocity of a falling object.

Yes falling objects do have air resistance. They have even more if they have a larger surface area.

If enough upthrust is added to an object then it will be pushed upwards. If enough air resistance is applied to an object then it will move in the direction which the air resistance is pushing it in. If you are already falling, then you will have air resistance. If it is increased when you open a parachute for instance, then you will slow down.

Nearly all falling object are affected by the resistance of air. However some objects have a mass greater than the air can affect. There is also the case where air resistance equals that of gravity and the object will not fall any faster.

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

Not "affect"; the word is "effect" in this case. Yes, air resistance has an effect on projectiles.

Air resistance is proportional to the cube of speed.

Air resistance does tend to slow things down, which may cause them to move more slowly. However, if you keep applying power - such as a jet engine - you can overcome the resistance and keep going.

In the absence of other factors, such as air resistance, the weight of an object does not affect its rate of acceleration in a gravitational field.

Yes mass affects the gravitational acceleration between objects. But air resistance doesn't affect the gravitational acceleration, it only affects the net acceleration of the objects concerned. According to Newton's Law of Gravitation the gravitational force between two or more objects is directly proportional to the product of their masses and inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them.

No. If you assume no air resistance, different objects will receive the same acceleration, regardless of their mass.No. If you assume no air resistance, different objects will receive the same acceleration, regardless of their mass.No. If you assume no air resistance, different objects will receive the same acceleration, regardless of their mass.No. If you assume no air resistance, different objects will receive the same acceleration, regardless of their mass.

Air Resistance is the kinetic friction of the object's surface moving through the air. In aeronautical terms this is known as drag.

air molecules in the way of falling objects

Air resistance is something that slows down falling objects. A sheet of paper has a lot of air resistance, that is why it falls so slowly.

The speed when falling objects no longer accelerates due to air resistance is the maximum falling velocity.
