terminal velocity

posted by .

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.
