good answer ....

In my case terminal velocity should be ~2.5m/s reached @ ~200m while it should be ~1.8m/s @ ~40m mark (reached in about 1 minute).

Somewhere I read that the theoretical limit for a human body free falling in water is ~3m/s .... way down there.

Do these numbers sound in the ball park to you?

Of course I am not planning to test my math in real life .....
