A que ball dropped from a third floor window will reach what speed/velocity? Is that high enough to reach terminal velocity?

- terminal velocity -

When an object is dropped, the velocity starts at zero and increases continuously until the object strikes the ground.

Neglecting wind resistance, the final

velocity is:

V^2 = Vo + 2g*h.

Vo = 0 = Initial velocity.

g = 9.8 m/s^2.

h = Ht. above gnd.

The ht. is the only parameter that is missing.
