v(subscript)t = g/k, describe the effects that changing the value of k would have on the terminal velocity of the object.

v(subscript)t is terminal velocity,
k is a constant dependent on the size and shape of the falling object.

Hmmm. If k is zero, vt is infinite. If k is very large, vt is very small.
