To go from km/h to m/s divide by 3.6 which is 1000 m/km / 3600 s/min a = change in velocity/time (note it is negative) F = m a By the way, this ignores wave resistance which would be a major part of the retarding force.

well, I guess it is ok to use g = 9.81 m/s^2 but we will have to check later if the thing is a significant fraction of an earth radius high. (1/2) m v^2 = m g h v^2 = 2 g h h = v^2/19.6 = 49*10^4 / 19.6 = 25,000 meters that is a small fraction of earth radius so constant g ...
