    If you are talking about "terminal velocity", this term is sometimes (or always?) when objects go through restrained acceleartion. That is, the object's acceleration is not constant and is constantly decreasing until it reaches zero. The velocity when the acceleration is zero, is the terminal velocity.

    Could also be talking about collision or something else, though.
