Terminal Velocity Vs. Free Fall
Terms in this set (11)
The maximum speed at which an object can fall.
broad, flat surfaces of the plane hit the air and pull back on the rest of the plane. This slows the plane down.
any push or pull from one object to another
Any object that is being acted upon only by the force of gravity. Free-falling objects do not encounter air resistance.
force that opposes the motion of one object moving past another; slows or stops objects.
Rate of speed; All free-falling objects (on Earth) accelerate downwards at a rate of 9.8 m/s/s
when an object moves through air, the air hits the object and slows it down
Friction acts in which direction?
Friction always acts in the opposite direction to movement.
A friction force that opposes the motion of an object through a fluid
Attractive force between two objects that depends on the masses and accelaration
Resistance of an object to a change in its motion
