Unformatted text preview: 1. (b): __________ 2. (mg/b) : __________ Task 4: By referencing eq. (3) describe what you think will happen to the downward accelerating body as v approaches (mg/b). Consider the following function: v t mg b e bt m ( ) = 1 (4) Task 5: Use an analogous procedure to that described in Task 1 to determine if eq. (4) defines a solution to eq. (3). Task 6: Use Excel to plot eq. (4) over the range (0 t 10 s) for the special case b/m = 1. Repeat this procedure for b/m = 2 and b/m = 3. Display all three curves on a common graph. Compare these graphs with the one you made in Task 2. Use a step size t = 0.25s. Print out the plot and attach it. Task 7: Is the conclusion you drew in Task 4 supported by these graphs? Would "terminal velocity" be an apt name for the quantity mg/b? Why?...
