    Terminal Velocity

    In resisted motion, to find terminal velocity do you have to find the limit as time approaches infinity and find velocity after integration or can you let a = 0 in the F=ma equation if force is given as mkv or mkv^2?

    In like every 4u question you set a = 0

    You can do it with time too but like every question starts with acceleration so it's easiest.
