1. ## 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?

Yes you can do that

In like every 4u question you set a = 0

Yeah I thought was much easier too, my teacher doesn't do that for some reason

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