Physics- falling

HideShow resource information

1. When is terminal velocity?

  • When the air resistance balances out the mass and there is no resultant force
  • When the air resistance overcomes the mass and the resultant force points up
  • When weight is at its strongest and it overcomes the air resistance

2. Which two forces act on you when falling?

  • Weight and Pull
  • Gravity/ weight and air resistance
  • Friction and gravitational potential energy
  • Air resistance and friction

3. Complete the equation... Weight=

  • Strength of gravitational field/ mass
  • Mass x Strength of gravitational field
  • Mass/Strength of gravitational field

4. As the mass stays level and the air resistance increases, where is the resultant force?

  • Downwards
  • Upwards

5. The falling objects accelerates down because of its weight, how is the initial air resistance compared to this?

  • There is no air resistance
  • The air resistance is greater
  • The air resistance is equal
  • The air resistance is less- but still there
