If we model the air resistance on a falling person as being proportional to the square of that person's speed, in certain circumstances the proportionality constant between the air resistance and the square of the speed is equal to 0.100 kg/m.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Part A What would be the terminal velocity of a 75.0 kg person?

Part B What would be the air resistance when the person's speed is half the terminal velocity?

I think the wording of the questions is confusing me. Can someone help set this problem up?
