I have thrown several things from balls to paper airplanes and I have noticed that the faster I throw something the longer it stays at any given altitude. The slower I throw something the shorter it stays at a given altitude. Also I have noticed that fast objects slow down faster than slow objects do. And fast objects tend to travel farther than slow objects. But why does something fast decelerate much faster than something that is slow. I would think that for the slow one it is easier to decelerate and so it would do it faster. I know it has something to do with the lift and drag forces as well as the amount of thrust my arm gives to the object. And if fast objects slow down faster then how is it that they travel farther?
