What is terminal velocity?
Terminal velocity is the constant maximum velocity reached by a body falling through the atmosphere under the attraction of gravity. An object is moving at its terminal velocity if its speed is constant due to the restraining force exerted by the air, water, or other fluid through which it is moving.
The speed at which the acceleration of a falling objects terminates because air resistance balances its weight?
That is called terminal velocity. That is called terminal velocity. That is called terminal velocity. That is called terminal velocity.
It decreases the terminal velocity of the parachutist.
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 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.
Passing the terminal velocity is clearly not possible, otherwise it could not be called the terminal velocity!
We will reach terminal velocity just before we hit the ground, then the result of our velocity will be terminal.
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.
If resistance is negligible, then there is no terminal velocity.
The marble has lower drag so its terminal velocity would be greater. Each has its own terminal velocity.
i think its velocity is min n its try to attain max. velocity which is terminal velocity...what say?
Zero, by definition. "Terminal velocity" implies that the velocity no longer changes.
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.
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
The duration of Terminal Velocity - film - is 1.7 hours.
Terminal velocity is achieved at about 140 miles per hour.
If it finds its mark, the terminal velocity is zero.
In free fall there is no terminal velocity. Terminal velocity is a concept that applies when there is air resistance, but a fall without air resistance is not a free fall.
the terminal velocity is the total speed that its take an object to reach the point it required from the initial velocity
If the penny is in a vaccum, the penny has no terminal velocity because verminal velocity is when the resistance against the falling penny is equal to the force of gravity. So if it is in a vaccum, it has no forces resisting the fall, and it has no terminal velocity.
Without air resistance, there would be no such thing as terminal velocity.
final velocity, or terminal velocity.
Yes, but only in free-fall. If I'm driving at 60 mph, I have a constant velocity, but it's not my "terminal velocity" in the sense that there is no limit to my acceleration caused by air friction. But yes, an object in free-fall reaches its terminal velocity when its velocity stops increasing (acceleration=0).
It is when the total air in the egg is the same as the friction created by the shell. That is when it has created terminal velocity
When terminal velocity is reached, the gravitational force is balanced with the force of resistance.
More resistance, caused by a greater density.
Objects are said to have reached their terminal velocity when they no longer accelerate.
Terminal Velocity - video game - happened in 1995.
Terminal Velocity - film - was created on 1994-09-23.
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.
Since the falling body is at terminal velocity, there is therefore no net force acting on it, otherwise it would change velocity.
99% of the object cause terminal velocity is determined from an object when it is going as fast as it will go
Before reaching terminal velocity, an object will fall faster and faster.
Speed takes no notice of the direction of the motion. Velocity means the speed and its direction.
because there is more air resistance
Zero. By definition, "terminal velocity" means that the object no longer accelerates.
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.
Sort of. It is not necessarily highest velocity in general, but it is the highest velocity a certain object can travel. Lets say you drop a penny of of the Empire State Building. When the penny reaches "terminal velocity", the penny's velocity can no longer increase.
down and up forces balance at terminal velocity mass * g = v^2 * drag coefficient if mass and terminal velocity are known , drag coefficient can be found say mass = 100 kg, g = 9.8 (m/s)/s, terminal velocity = 70 m/s so at terminal velocity: 100*9.8=4900* drag coefficient then: 100*9.8/4900 = 0.2 (drag coefficient) if you reduce the drag coefficient, the terminal velocity will increase, until the forces balance
It might be an incorrect spelling of "terminal velocity".
The incompressibility, inertia and relatively higher viscosity of water make it difficult to displace, so its reactive forces on the falling object are greater; hence the terminal velocity is reduced.
Its the air resistance that causes the free falling body to reach its terminal velocity
Take an accelerometer with you when you jump, and at the point that it reads, "zero", the terminal velocity has been reached.
No it would have a lower terminal velocity as there would be more air resistance acting upon it
