I can't seem to come up with a decent formula/accepted value for air resistance.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I realize there are things that need to be taken into account, but I am already delving into things way beyond what I've done per the course work, and I don't want to bite off more than I can chew. I understand there is no exact formula for air resistance, but I need a number to find a terminal velocity.

Can anybody give me a ball park figure for an averaged sized person? (m=70kg, A=1.60m)
