  1. Feb 22, 2004 #1
    I have to questions concerning air resistance. Can someone please help me!?!??!

    A 252 N bag of nails falls at its terminal speed. How much air resistance acts on the nails???

    Here's a big hint:

    "Terminal speed" means some constant speed. If it's falling at constant speed, what does that tell you about the NET force acting on it?
