Homework Help: Terminal Velocity

Posted by Teya on Tuesday, November 30, 2010 at 7:46pm.

How can u determine that a falling object has reached terminal velocity from a velocity time graph of its motion?

u can determine if a falling object has reached terminal velocity from a velocity-time graph of its motion by its stop of acceleration. The falling object no longer accelerates and travels at constant velocity. At this point, the upward forces equal the downward forces.

Explain how u would determine the distance the object travelled. How does ur answer differ from ur answer to a? (I do not get this question) wouldn't u times the v by time to get distance?
