1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Consider the following statement: If at all times during a projectile's flight its speed is much less than the terminal speed, the effects of air resistance are usually very small. (a) Without reference to the explicit equations for the magnitude of v t„, explain clearly why this is so. (b) By examining the explicit formulas (2.26) and (2.53) explain why the statement above is even more useful for the case of quadratic drag than for the linear case. [Hint: Express the ratio f/mg of the drag to the weight in terms of the ratio v /vter.] 2. Relevant equations (2.26) vter = mg/b (2.53) vter = sqrt(mg/c) 3. The attempt at a solution I solved part a no problem, but I'm having issues with b. I am assuming when they use "f/mg," since there are no parenthesis around "mg" that g is in the numerator, not the denominator. However, I am not sure what the statement in the hint means. I'm not sure if it is telling me to set things equal to each other (reduce, shift things around, etc.) or if it's telling me to plug values into the other equation. if it were just "vter" in the second value in the hint, then I would assume I plus that in for the force on the first ratio. However, with the information given, I'm at a loss as to what the hint is even suggesting I do.
