We’ve been talking about terminal velocity in class lately (due to the forces of gravity and friction from the air), and I was curious just how fast terminal velocity was. As it turns out, there is no defined terminal velocity. You can change it depending on everything such as drag, mass, and size(surface area) of the object that’s falling. The more surface area there is, the lower the terminal velocity is. In this video, there are terminal velocities ranging anywhere from 121 miles per hour, which is the average human terminal velocity, and 240 miles per hour or higher for something like the hawk in the video. So again, there is no defined terminal velocity. But it’s still cool, and actually kind of amazing.
