Homework Help: Calculating effects of air resistance on a falling mass

  1. Jan 19, 2009 #1
    Calculating effects of air resistance on a ball of mass 0.67kg, being dropped from a height of 4.93m.

    I have worked out theoretically what time it would take without air resistance using
    s=ut + 0.5at(squared) however i cannot find an equation that will factor in air resistance.

    thanks
