We conduct an analysis of a falling ball in liquid to determine its terminal velocity and to ascertain just what radius ball for a given mass density is necessary to attain a designated terminal velocity.

We introduce the basics of RLC circuits, defining the terms of inductance, resistance, and capacitance in a circuit in which an induced voltage created a current running through these devices.

We are given data on the time and position of a whiffle ball as it falls to the ground. We attempt to model the falling ball and we confront the different resistance terms and models. Finally, we introduce a new way of comparing models, the Akaike Information Criterion, and apply it to our models.
