3.3 Terminal velocity: introduction

Course subject(s) 3. Drag force

Welcome to the last section of this module! You are going to apply your acquired knowledge about flow around objects to real life problems now. For example, you will calculate the terminal velocity for a falling hailstone and an air bubble rising in coke.

If you look at other situations, you will realise how many situations involving flow can be approximated by falling or rising spheres, which you are now able to solve. Think about this and good luck with this section!
