What is terminal speed? When a skydiver has reached terminal speed, what is the air resistance equal to? What is the skydiver's acceleration?
Weegy: As a skydiver falls, he accelerates downwards, gaining speed with each second. The increase in speed is accompanied by an increase in air resistance (as observed in the animation below). This force of air resistance counters the force of gravity. [ [ As the skydiver falls faster and faster, the amount of air resistance increases more and more until it approaches the magnitude of the force of gravity. Once the force of air resistance is as large as the force of gravity, a balance of forces is attained and the skydiver no longer accelerates. The skydiver is said to have reached a terminal velocity. ] ] (More)

Explain each step of the derivation. User: You sit at the outer rim of a Ferris wheel that rotates at 2 revolutions per minute (RPM). What would your rotational speed be if you were instead clinging to a position halfway from the center to the outer rim?
Weegy: 1. Rotational speed will not change. For everyone sitting anywhere on the wheel, it will remain the same, i.e. 2 RPM. (More)
