If a feather is dropped from a height, would its apparent weight be equal to its true weight or zero as in weightlessness.?
I understand that the drag force acting on the feather would be abundant so it would reach terminal velocity soon and thus a = 0
So, apparent weight = m(g-a) = true weight.
But what bothers me is don’t all bodies accelerate with 9.8 m/s^2? So would the feather have acceleration 0 or 9.8?
