In fluid dynamics, what is the term for the highest attainable speed an object can reach as it falls?

Answer:

TERMINAL VELOCITY

Terminal velocity is the highest velocity attainable by an object as it falls through a fluid (air is the most common example). It occurs when the sum of the drag force (Fd) and the buoyancy is equal to the downward force of gravity (FG) acting on the object. Since the net force on the object is zero, the object has zero acceleration.
