Questions Students Ask: About Terminal Velocity.
Meyer, Earl R.; Nelson, Jim
Physics Teacher, v22 n4 p256-57 Apr 1984
If a ball were given an initial velocity in excess of its terminal velocity, would the upward force of air resistance (a function of velocity) be greater than the downward force of gravity and thus push the ball back upwards? An answer to this question is provided. (JN)
