Fig. 2.

Fractional error in the flight time as a function of the dimensionless parameter . The solid line represents the exact relation given in Eq. (23); the dotted line represents the asymptotic formula given in Eq. (25).

Fig. 3.

Flight times in nonuniform atmosphere with exponentially varying density. Terminal velocity, based on constant, standard sea-level density, is .

Image of Fig. 4.
Fig. 4.

Fractional error in the altitude for uniform and nonuniform atmospheres. The terminal velocity is the same as in Fig. 3.

Image of Fig. 5.
Fig. 5.

The velocity profile as a function of the altitude for uniform (dotted lines) and nonuniform (solid lines) atmospheres. The terminal velocity, for standard sea-level density, is and the initial velocity is . The terminal velocity based on the local density is shown by the dash-dotted line.
