7. An object falling in air experiences a drag force directly related to the square of the speed such that F = Cv2 (where C is a constant of proportionality). Assuming that the buoyant force due to air is negligible, the terminal velocity of this falling body is best described by the equation:

(The terminal velocity is the speed at which the object is in equilibrium).

a.) mg/C

b.) [ (mg)] / C

c.) mg / (C)

d.) (mg/C)

e.) C/mg
