Tutor description

Vertical Free Fall of the Bodies and Air Resistance• When an object falls towards earth under gravity in absence of air resistance, it is called a freely falling body.• Air resistance affects motion of a falling body and depends on its shape, size and speed.

This continues tillforce of air resistance equals weight of object. Now object no longer accelerates but falls with a constant speed calledterminal velocity. TV is about 200 km/hr for a skydiver with an unopened parachute. While falling, skydivers use a "spreadeagle" position to increase the air resistance and prolong time of fall.Projectile motionAny object which follows a path determined by the gravitational force and air resistance when an initial velocity is given, iscalled a projectile. A bullet shot from a rifle, a rocket after its fuel is exhausted,
