How do you find terminal velocity?
So I have a limited knowledge of physics, and so every article i have attempted to read contains to much technical jargon for me to understand. Can you please explain how, if given say a sphere, what measurements would need to be known? How would I go about calculating terminal velocity? Also with any equation please state what each variable actually stands for. Thanks!

Seriously, I'd try http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/airfri2.html
The zero velocity thing was of course a joke.

I figured it was, even I know that terminal velocity isnt zero.
|drag, drag coefficient, drag force, simply explained, terminal velocity|
