Terminal velocity is the maximum velocity an object reaches when it is falling under the force of gravity or another constant driving force. The object is subject to a resistance that increases as the velocity increases,... More »

The terminal velocity of a free-falling human depends on the mass and density of the person. In general, the heavier the body, the longer it can accelerate before drag holds it at a constant speed. For a typical human, t... More »

Terminal velocity is the velocity at which an object in freefall no longer accelerates due to gravity because the drag force of the surrounding air equals the gravitational force of Earth. Objects with more mass have mor... More »

Objects fall at the same velocity regardless of their weight, if gravity is the only force acting upon them. In a vacuum, where air resistance has been eliminated, a bowling ball and a feather fall at the same speed. More »

Terminal speed, also known as terminal velocity, is the maximum speed of a falling object when it can no longer accelerate from the gravitational pull or any constant force. This is due to air resistance negating the for... More »

It is possible for an object to be accelerating if it has a zero speed or zero velocity. In such a case, the object only has zero speed for an instant. More »
