So I have a limited knowledge of physics, and so every article i have attempted to read contains to much technical jargon for me to understand. Can you please explain how, if given say a sphere, what measurements would need to be known? How would I go about calculating terminal velocity? Also with any equation please state what each variable actually stands for. Thanks!
