Step 1

Write the expression for acceleration,

The acceleration is directly proportional to the net force applied to an object

Step 2

The terminal velocity is a constant velocity acquired by a falling object when the net force acting on it is zero. When the weight of the object is balanced by the upward buoyant force and air resistance, the net force on the object is zero, and thus the velocity of object becomes constant and is called as terminal velocity.

Step 3

Therefore

Write the expression...
