## Main Question or Discussion Point

F=ma

eg, a static bag of a 1kg weight has a force on the table of .98N.

if it were to fall, would its force hitting the ground be the sum of the standard g of 9.8m/s+ 9.8t?

or do you scrap that idea and use K.E. instead?

and also, if it reaches terminal velocity and has an acceleration of 0, surely F=ma isnt used as the result would be 0 force acting on the surface it lands

been a while since i was taught this in college
