How does an object achieve terminal velocity?
99% of the object cause terminal velocity is determined from an object when it is going as fast as it will go
The greatest velocity that a falling object can achieve is termed, terminal velocity. The equation for terminal velocity is equal to the square root of (2mg / (air density * projected area * drag coefficient))
The speed at terminal velocity depends on the mass and shape of the object. For example, a sheet of paper will have a very low terminal velocity; the terminal velocity for a man will be much higher.
Terminal velocity is the velocity that a falling object approaches asymptotically as it falls through a resisting medium (like air). If an object impacts something before getting close to the terminal velocity it will still have an "ending velocity" but it won't be the same as the terminal velocity. If an object falls far enough, the ending velocity will approach the terminal velocity close enough for them to be essentially the same.
the terminal velocity is the total speed that its take an object to reach the point it required from the initial velocity
Zero, by definition. "Terminal velocity" implies that the velocity no longer changes.
the greatest velocity a falling object reaches is terminal velocity
the greatest velocity a falling object reaches is terminal velocity
When THE FRICTION BETWEEN THE OBJECT AND THE ATMOSPHERE equals the force of gravity on a falling object the object reaches terminal velocity.
final velocity, or terminal velocity.
That varies, depending on the object. A massive object may take a long time to reach terminal velocity; a less massive object will reach terminal velocity faster. It basically depends on the object's mass, size, and shape.
Terminal velocity is the greatest velocity a falling object reaches.
Terminal velocity is the velocity at which the force of gravity is balanced by the force of air resistance. The (falling) object does not go any faster than terminal velocity.
An object that has reached its terminal velocity is going at a constant velocity. Acceleration is the rate of change of the velocity. The rate of change is zero. Therefore, the acceleration is zero.
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.
Terminal velocity is the velocity where the force of gravity balances the drag of the air stream flow past the object. At terminal velocity, the object's acceleration due to gravity becomes zero, and the object begins to fall at a constant velocity. In a vacuum, however, there is no air - and thus no drag- so the object continues to accelerate.
The greatest velocity a falling object reaches is called the terminal velocity. For an object falling at the terminal velocity, the weight force of the object is balanced by the drag force and buoyant force on the object. W + FDRAG + FBUOYANT = FNET = 0.0
It's terminal velocity.
There is no such thing as "maximum terminal velocity", neither on Jupiter nor hear on Earth. The "terminal velocity" depends on the specific object - and on the atmospheric conditions. For example, a very heavy object will typically have a larger terminal velocity than one that is very light; and near Earth's surface, the terminal velocity (for a given object) will be smaller than in the upper atmosphere, where there is less air resistance.
Objects are said to have reached their terminal velocity when they no longer accelerate.
The surface area is the variable to determine how fast an object will be moving when it reaches terminal velocity.
If air resistance is significant, after falling for a while the air resistance will be as strong as the force of gravity; the two forces will be in equilibrium, and the object won't accelerate any more. This velocity is called "terminal velocity". The amount of this terminal velocity, and the time it takes to approach the terminal velocity, depends on the specific object that is falling.
When objects reach terminal velocity what are the forces involved and describe the velocity of the object?
When an object is at terminal velocity, the two forces due to gravity and drag are equal, so the object ceases accelerating. Its motion is constant and vertically downward.
Zero. "Terminal velocity" means that the object is no longer accelerating; the downward force of gravity and the upward force of resistance are in balance.
Terminal velocity defines the point at which an object will no longer accelerate. When a falling object reaches terminal velocity, it will continue to fall at a constant speed.
Before reaching terminal velocity, an object will fall faster and faster.
Zero. By definition, "terminal velocity" means that the object no longer accelerates.
The terminal velocity of a falling object depends upon its aerodynamics (which is to say, its shape) rather than its size and mass.
all objects have a terminal velocity once youu reach terminal velocity you can not fall any faster
The terminal velocity of a falling object is the constant speed where the force of gravity is equal to the force of drag. Then the forces cancel each other out. Essentially, terminal velocity is when the speed of a falling object is no longer changing. It isn't accelerating or slowing. It's constant.
For a falling object, when the Force due to gravity (The weight of the object) and the Wind resistance force (A Frictional force) are equal, the object is at it's terminal velocity.
Since the falling body is at terminal velocity, there is therefore no net force acting on it, otherwise it would change velocity.
Its the air resistance that causes the free falling body to reach its terminal velocity
1) Terminal velocity is never quite reached; a falling object will get closer and closer to terminal velocity. You can put some arbitrary limit, for which you can say that "for all intents and purposes, terminal velocity has been reached", for example, 95%, or 99%, of terminal velocity. 2) The actual terminal velocity varies for different objects. A feather will approach its terminal velocity almost instantly; a heavy object, without much surface area (for example… Read More
ahhh physics.......i love it.... but it is terminal velocity :)
It is zero.
No. Terminal velocity is a particular kind of velocity and friction is a particular kind of force. The terminal velocity of a falling object is the maximum velocity it can have because air resistance prevents it from going any faster. And air resistance is a type of friction. So terminal velocity is due to a type of friction.
Terminal velocity is reached when the force of gravity is equal to the drag (force) on an object.
When gravitational forces and air resistance equalize on an object that is falling toward earth and object stops accelerating what is the velocity of an object called?
Yes, if it reaches terminal velocity, which is a constant velocity. When terminal velocity is reached, the downward gravitational force is equal to the upward force of air resistance, and the object no longer accelerates.
An object falls in a gravity field the speed increases until the object reaches its terminal velocity. This is the speed at which the difference in density between the object and the air it is passing through, the friction and resistance of air the object is displacing balances the attraction of gravity's potential to increase the downward velocity. Terminal velocity is affected by the thickness of the air the object is passing through, and the… Read More
it depends on the mass of the object
The only two ways to increase the speed of an object beyond its terminal velocity is to either reduce its drag, or increase the force causing it to fall. The speed of a falling object can be accelerated beyond terminal velocity, but absent a continuing force, and given enough time, it will eventually slow down to its terminal velocity.
