I have a mass of 85kg and a terminal velocity of 46.7m/s. I think I correctly calculated the coefficient of air resistance(b) as 17.84 because I know that the Resistance force at terminal velocity is 833.13 = b($v_t$). I need to figure the acceleration of the object when it is traveling at 30m/s and what the drag force would be at that point as well. R=bv doesn't seem to work at that point, so my b must be off which doesn't really make sense to me.
