## Homework Statement

The final velocity of an object falling through air from various heights is given. From this, can you derive an equation for the drag force acting on the object with respect to velocity?

## Homework Equations

Maybe relevant?

W

_{no drag}$$=mgh,$$

W

_{real}$$=\frac{1}{2}mv^2,$$

W

_{drag}$$=mgh-\frac{1}{2}mv^2,$$

## The Attempt at a Solution

W

_{drag}$$=F(drag~average)s$$

This allows me to solve for the average drag, but I don't know how to go from there to equating the actual drag force acting on the object at a specific velocity.

Thanks for any and all help! :)
