When a particle fall through the air, its initial acceleration a=g diminishes until it is zero, and thereafter it falls at a constant or terminal velocity vf. If this variation of the acceleration can be expressed as a=(g/v^2f)(v^2f-v^2), determine the time needed for the velocity v<vf. Initially the particle falls from rest.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
