The effect of air resistance on projectile motion

In this post, we will find the effect of air resistance on projectile motion. We have seen that in the absence of air resistance, the trajectory or path followed by a projectile is a parabola and that the path depends only on the initial speed and angle of projection. But in the real world, all […]

Terminal Velocity, Free Fall, & Drag force

Here we will discuss in detail the terminal velocity and Terminal Velocity Equation. Before that, we will also cover a few important pointers on free fall and then discuss Air Drag or Air resistance, Drag force, and Drag Force Equation. In one of the earlier posts, we have discussed the free-fall equations. You can check that if […]
