### The speed when falling objects no longer accelerates due to air resistance is?

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

### What is the force called that makes all objects fall at different speed?

That's called the "force of imagination".In the absence of air, all objects fall with the same acceleration. At equal times after the drop, all objectsare falling at the same speed.

### How does gravity affect objects falling at the same time?

Two objects falling at the same time will fall with the same speed (assuming they both have similar shape and density)

### How does air resistance affect the acceleration of falling objects?

As a falling object accelerates through air, its speed increases and air resistance increases. While gravity pulls the object down, we find that air resistance is trying to limit the object's speed. Air resistance reduces the acceleration of a falling object. It would accelerate faster if it was falling in a vacuum.

### What is the highest speed possible for an object to travel?

The universal speed limit for material objects is c : the speed of light in a vacuum.

### How is it possible that the expansion of the universe is faster than the speed of light?

Relativity theory establishes a speed limit for objects travelling through space - but the expansion of the universe is the expansion of space. There is no speed limit for that expansion.

Subsonic

### An objects speed at a particular moment in time is called?

Instantaneous Speed.

### Does the gravitation field of the black hole pulled objects in faster than the speed of light?

the answer is no; the speed of light is the universal speed limit, nothing travels faster

### What experiment of Galileo's involved cannonballs?

Galileo's experiment to show that mass had little effect on the speed of falling objects involved two cannonballs of different sizes being dropped from a certain height. This showed that, in a vacuum at least, falling objects fall at the same speed no matter their mass.

### What includes the speed of the objects and the direction of its motion?

Speed and direction is called velocity.
