Using a vertical wind tunnel at the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics it was determined to be = 43 m / s

=154 km / hr =140 feet / second = 95.5 miles / hr

What is the minimum velocity required to project a body from a height h so that it will not fall back on earth?

if it was a continuous velocity then 10mps i guess because that is the terminal velocity when an object is dropped this is another person who answer actuallyn you are wrong terminal velocity is the maximum


Is terminal velocity the same speed for any weight?

Terminal velocity for a feather will be considerably lower than the terminal velocity of a bullet. The size and shape of the object will play an important role. While objects dropped from a given height in a vacuum will fall to earth at the same velocity, the resistance caused by atmosphere will be different for different objects.


Ammo fired down terminal velocity compared to ammo dropped at high altitude?

Equal, as long as the fired round and the dropped round have the same shape.


Can cat fly if dropped high enough?

Cats have a terminal velocity that is not fatal if they fall. In fact, if cats are dropped high enough they will spread themselves out like a parachute.


If i dropped a penny off an airplane and it hits your head can it kill you?

I say NO. If you mean it is dropped and falls vertically. Discover Channel's "Myth Busters" tried to determine if a bullet would kill you if it was fired directly vertical and falls on its own. The bullet or penny would fall at terminal velocity which is about 120mph. However, they will tumble which slows them down more. This velocity and their mass is not enough to kill you.


How do you calculate the point that a dropped coffee filter hits its terminal velocity?

Terminal velocity on earth is static for all objects. A coffee filter being so light would have an effect on how much the friction slows it down, it would not however change its "terminal velocity" in a vacuum it would fall at the same rate as you or I. Approximately 120 MPH.


A 2 kg object is dropped from a height of 1000 m What is the force of air resistance on the object when it reaches terminal velocity?

it is ur mama


Does the height effect the bounce of the ball?

Yes, assuming the ball has elasticity and you haven't exceeded the height where the ball, when dropped, reaches terminal velocity.


Will an object dropped on the moon reach a terminal velocity?

No. Terminal velocity is a limiting velocity, reached when a falling object's drag to wind resistance equals the force of gravity. For instance, on the Earth, a human being's terminal velocity is about 200 kilometers per hour, depending on drag which is depending on how the arms and legs are held. On the moon, however, there is no atmosphere - it is in a vacuum - so there is no wind resistance due to velocity and thus no terminal valocity. A falling object on the moon will accelerate without bounds. (Until, of course, it hits something.) If the object's velocity exceeds the escape velocity of the moon, which is 2.38 kilometers per second, and the velocity vector is above the moon's horizon, then the object will escape the gravity well of the moon, but that is not the same as terminal velocity.


What is the velocity of a ball dropped on the surface of Mars if the acceleration of gravity is 3.7 meters per second squared?

When given a constant acceleration, just multiply it by time, t, to detemine the final velocity. If the initial velocity was zero (as is the case when you drop something), then the average velocity is half the terminal velocity.


When a pearl is dropped into a dense liquid it quickly acquires a uniform non accelerated motion downward why does this happen?

It accelerates quickly up to a low terminal velocity, then continues at constant velocity. At terminal speed, the downward force of gravity and the upward force of liquid resistance are in balance.


Will a ball bounce higher if it is dropped from a greater height?

yes up to a certain point as there is more kinetic energy involved.The height of its bounce is limited by its terminal velocity


If a penny was dropped from the top of the Eiffel Tower could it kill someone below?

no it will not kill somebody because the penny would reach terminal velocity before it hit the ground.


When is terminal velocity good?

Based on two classes' worth of research on terminal velocity I'd say it's good for keeping some falling objects from reaching a speed that will, literally, be "terminal" (fatal) to whomever it hits. I was researching the myth behind whether or not a penny dropped off a tall building will kill some unlucky pedestrian below. All of my sources say it's impossible for said penny to do more than sting the person (barring them being hit in the eye or them somehow swallowing it), and the reason for this is terminal velocity.


What was the name of the airplane that dropped the bomb on nagasaki?

Is there a maximum speed an object can achieve if dropped from a great height and if so what is it?

Yes, that is known as the terminal velocity. At that speed, the air resistance (pulling up) would be in equilibrium with the gravitation (pulling down), so there is no further acceleration. The terminal velocity depends on the object's size and shape. In general, heavier objects will fall faster.Yes, that is known as the terminal velocity.

What is the velocity of a dropped object after it has fallen for 3.0?

Why velocity is non zero when ball dropped to the ground?

The initial velocity of a dropped ball is zero in the y (up-down) direction. After it is dropped gravity causes an acceleration, which causes the velocity to increase. F = ma, The acceleration due to gravity creates a force on the mass of the ball.

What is the fastest an object can fall called?

When objects fall gravity causes them to increase their speed. The speed would continue to increase if there was no atmosphere. But the atmosphere causes friction which prevents the object from continually increasing its speed. At some point in the fall the object reaches what is called its "terminal velocity". This is the maximum speed it reaches when the frictional force prevents it from going any faster. The terminal velocity of falling objects depends on their shape and mass so it is different for different objects. Also some objects take a long time to reach their terminal velocity so they have to be dropped from very high up in order to have time to reach terminal velocity before hitting the ground.


What is the displacement and velocity of a rock dropped from rest after 4s?

The displacement and velocity of a rock that is dropped from rest after 4s, is 6 km/h. This can vary depending on the speed of the rock, and the surroundings.


What was the nickname of the airplane that dropped the first atomic bomb?

How will a package look after it was dropped from an airplane?

That would depend on the package, its contents and how it is wrapped. An empty, sturdy box will soon achieve terminal speed and look much like the box would after being dropped from a height of a few meters. A poorly wrapped heavy object would be seriously damaged.
