Calculate Terminal Velocity


Calculate the Terminal Velocity for given values:
Mass of the Falling Objectweight
Acceleration Due to Gravitym/s2
Density of Fluidkg/m3
Projected Area of the Objectarea
Drag Coefficient

 

Terminal Velocity m/s
The calculator will find the terminal velocity for given values of mass of the falling object, acceleration due to gravity, density of fluid, projected area of the object and drag coefficient. When any object falls due to gravity then object speed is gained due to gravitation force this maximum falling speed is called terminal velocity.
Formula:
Vt = √ ((2*m*g) / (ρ * A * Cd))
Where,
Vt = Terminal Velocity (Maximum Falling Speed),
m = Mass of the Falling Object,
g = Acceleration due to Gravity,
ρ = Density of Fluid,
A = Projected Area of the Object,
Cd = Drag Coefficient
