1. Air resistance. Free fall has no or little air resistance. With air resistance, there is a terminal velocity, which depends on how much resistance there is. When air resistance equals weight, the accelerlation is zero, and velocity constant.
In skydiving, air resistance is used to fly at therminal velocity.
