In probability and statistics,the Cauchy distribution, is a continuous probability distribution. The Cauchy distribution is often used in statistics as the ... more

A trajectory or flight path is the path that a moving object follows through space as a function of time. A trajectory can be described mathematically ... more

where **Vt** is the terminal velocity,
**m** is the mass of the skydiver,
**g** is the acceleration due to gravity,
**C _{d}** is the drag coefficient,

**ρ**is the density of the fluid through which the object is falling, and

**A**is the projected area of the object.
