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

In general, a greater surface area means there will be more air resistance. However, the exact shape may also matter - air resistance doesn't depend solely on the amount of surface.In general, a greater surface area means there will be more air resistance.

Air resistance is affected by surface area and Shape

air resistance differs from the friction between solid surfaces. air reesistance depends on surface area and the speeed of an object.

Surface area affects collision rate because the larger the surface area the more air resistance is acting on it, therefor a larger surface area can slow down collision rate.

Well gravity would pull the body to the ground. The greater the surface area of the body the more air resistance there would be.

The Question : What effect does shape have in air resistance ? well is the surface area is larger the more resistance there is to the air and if the surface area is smaller it allows the air to pass by more easily

What type of friction is air resistance?fluid friction. Air resistance is fluid friction. Air resistance occurs between the surface of a falling object and the air that surrounds it. Rolling friction occurs when a rounded surface moves over a solid and sliding friction occurs when a solid moves over another solid. Static friction occurs when a solid touches another solid but there is no movement.What two factors affect air resistance?size and shape. Size and shape are the two factors that affect air resistance. Air resistance works with surface area, so the more surface area, the more air resistance. Think about when you drop two pieces of paper: one crumpled and one flat. The crumpled one falls faster because there is less air resistance acting on the paper.

Air resistance depends on an object's size, shape, density, and surface area.

Weight does not affect how fast objects fall; it is the air resistance that they encounter that affects speed. For example a sheet of paper has a large surface area, so a large air resistance. Whereas a rock has a smaller surface area, so less air resistance (so falls quicker).

A parachute works as the gravity allows the parachute to go up into the air, then the surface area is covered with air resistance.

Decrease the surface area of the object

no it is entirely caused by the air hitting a surface obviously the bigger the surface area the more air resistance

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

The main aspects that affect the amount of air resistance against a particular object are the weight of the object and the speed that it is travelling at. The other important aspect is the shape of the surface area in the direction the object is falling.

well air resistance can make objects with a-lot of surface fall more slowly

Air resistance is the force of air particles trying to stop the motion of an object. Air resistance increases with increased speed and surface area.

Surface and velocity are the two main factors that influence air resistance. However, area is also another factor that influences air resistance.

According to Conceptual Physics by Paul Hewitt, the object's frontal area (only the surface area that has to push through the air) and the object's speed are the two forces.

No, because the paper has a smaller surface area.

Because it has a lot of surface area for its weight.

Air resistance depends on the velocity of the moving object and the object's surface area in the direction of travel.

The air resistance on any object depends upon 2 factors these are:Surface area of the object i.e;the more the surface area the more will be the air resistence as most of the air is comming in contact with the body of the surface and thus more resistant is the body to the air.Secondly,the speed at which the object is moving i.e:the more the speed the greater will be the air resistance exerted on an object.
