See Velocity, Terminal.
the constant speed resulting when the sum of the forces reaches zero, usually because one of the forces is velocity dependent (see figure 10.23)
n, the equilibrium speed between the force of gravity and wind resistance for an object in freefall - i.e. the speed at which a jumper falls. Usually about 120 mph; freaks usually fall faster, and speeds over 200 mph can be achieved in verticle dives.
The rate of descent at which a given body position will descend no faster. A belly-to-earth posture has a terminal velocity of about 120 MPH (180 km/h). A feet-first or headfirst posture has a fall rate of about 180 MPH, (290 km/h).
Maximum speed, when getting another skate doesn't speed you up any more. There is a disease that gives you this.
the constant maximum velocity reached by a body falling through the atmosphere under the attraction of gravity
a maximum speed (velocity) reached by a falling object due to air drag.
the speed at which the drag forces upwards on the skydiver are equal to the pull of gravity downwards, so that the vertical speed remains constant. Terminal velocity is around 120 mph when in the usual belly down position, although this will vary with weight and body shape. A skydiver's terminal velocity can be altered by changing body position, reaching speeds of up to 180 mph when freeflying.
The velocity at which an object cannot accelerate further, due to air resistance, friction, or other counter forces.
The terminal velocity is the velocity a falling object reaches when the force of gravity acting on it is exactly balanced by the drag force. Friction
The speed of the projectile upon impact with the target.
Steady velocity achieved by a falling particle when gravitational forces are balanced by viscous forces. See Stokes' Law.
The maximum speed of an object, reached when the forces moving the object are balanced by its frictional forces. Forces and motion
The speed at which drag matches the pull of gravity, resulting in a constant fall rate. Typical terminal velocity for formation skydiving is in the 120 to 135 mile per hour range, but speeds as high as 300 miles per hour have been reached.
the maximum speed at which your terminal will fall when tonked from the roof of a very tall building..
Maximum speed that can be achieve by a body falling through a fluid like water or air.
(DOD, NATO) 1. Hypothetical maximum speed a body could attain along a specified flight path under given conditions of weight and thrust if diving through an unlimited distance in air of specified uniform density. 2. Remaining speed of a projectile at the point in its downward path where it is level with the muzzle of the weapon.
1. A measurement of an HVAC system's air circulation capabilities. 2. The maximum velocity of a falling object.
The terminal velocity of an object falling towards the earth, in non-vacuum, is the speed at which the gravitational force is pulling it downwards and an opposing force is faced, by the resistance of air or fluid, resulting in a Drag (physics) (also called air resistance) pushing it upwards. As the object keeps on downwards accelerating, the drag produced is going higher. At a particular speed, the drag force produced will be equivalent to the downward force of the object.
Terminal Velocity is a video game developed by Terminal Reality and published by 3 D Realms in 1995.
Terminal Velocity is a 1994 action movie starring Charlie Sheen as a daredevil skydiver who becomes mixed up with Russian spies. It was written by David Twohy and directed by Deran Sarafian.
