Terminal velocity is simply the fastest speed that a falling object can reach in a certain circumstance. Different objects have different terminal ... 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.
