Unformatted text preview: determined by direction of motion. Resistive force always opposes motion. Different from kinetic friction Friction force is constant as long as object is moving. Resistive force increases when velocity increases (depends on velocity). Chapter 5 Resistive Force Causes Falling Particles to Reach Terminal Velocity time velocity with resistance in vacuum v F =m g R Terminal velocity occurs when velocity is so high that the resistance ( R ) force balances the gravitational force ( F = m g ) Motion characterized by the value of the terminal velocity and time required to reach terminal velocity...
