Terminal velocity

Dependent Variables Time Independent Variables Mass of coffee filters Controlled Variables Drop height Area Random errors Wind or draft that can develop in the room Air pressure may change as it gets warmer during the day. When an object moves through air, the drag force brings about the reduction of the acceleration until terminal velocity is achieved by the body. When this occurs, the acceleration will be zero as the body will move with constant velocity. Terminal velocity depends on the size, shape, and mass of the falling object mass (kg). terminal speed (m/s). 0.0000009 0.89 0.0000018 1.48 0.0000027 1.72…
