Problem 25RQ

What is the effect of air resistance on the acceleration of falling objects? What is the acceleration with no air resistance?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

ANSWER: A freely falling object experiences weightlessness and an acceleration of 9.8 m/s . this increases the speed of the falling object gradually. If there would be air resistance, then it works like a drag force and the acceleration decreases and this causes a decrease in speed too. The person falling in such case will not feel the weightlessness....
