Forces and motion 3: Acceleration, deceleration, friction, drag effects and terminal velocity - experiments with falling or rolling objects due to gravitational field

 Doc Brown's Physics exam study revision notes

Sub-index for this section on acceleration and deceleration

mostly with objects moving under a gravitational field effect

3.1 Introduction to the connection between friction and motion

3.2 How speed/velocity affects drag force, how to increase/reduce it?

3.3 Terminal velocity - ticker taped trolley - running board experiment

3.4 Terminal velocity of a small sphere falling down through a liquid

3.5 Complex behaviour of a falling parachutist: forces & velocities

3.6 Other situations of falling objects e.g. feather or hammer in different gravitational fields, thought experiments described and explained!

Reminder of a whole free body force diagram
