# stratos space jump

I had so much fun creating graphs for the Red Bull Stratos Space Jump calculation, that I figured I should make some more.
Can you fall faster than terminal velocity? That is the question.
Air Resistance
Air resistance is a force exerted on an object as it moves through some stuff - air in this case. The magnitude is usually modeled as:
Rho is the density of the stuff the object is moving through
A is the cross sectional area of the object
C is the drag coefficient of the object - this depends on the shape (a cone would be different than a flat disk)
v is the magnitude of the velocity of…
