Under quasistatic conditions (i.e. no turbulence), the force inflicted by the media on the object is always acting in the direction directly opposed to the objects instantaneous… Fr = – cv, where coefficient c is called the damping constant. Thus the total of the forces acting on an object falling through atmosphere in a homogeneous field of gravity, moving…
