Steel Spheres and Skydiver--Terminal Velocity
Costa Leme, J.; Moura, C.; Costa, Cintia
Physics Teacher, v47 n8 p531-532 Nov 2009
This paper describes the use of open source video analysis software in the study of the relationship between the velocity of falling objects and time. We discuss an experiment in which a steel sphere falls in a container filled with two immiscible liquids. The motion is similar to that of a skydiver falling through air.
