Bostock is entitled to try to make his case to a jury. The county insists that Title VII allows it to fire workers for being gay, meaning that the case should be dismissed at the outset.

Clayton County, No. The justices will also hear a companion case, Altitude Express v. Zarda, No. There are three stages as an object falls through a fluid:.

The weight of an object does not change as it falls, as long as it stays whole. The diagram shows what happens to the speed of a skydiver from when they leave the aircraft, to when they reach the ground after their parachute opens. Before the parachute opens:. Note that the skydiver does not go upwards when the parachute opens, even though this can appear to happen when a skydiver is being filmed.
The illusion happens because the person with the camera opens their parachute later on, so falls downwards past the skydiver. The diagram shows a velocity-time graph for an object falling through a fluid, eg air, water, oil. The object accelerates at first because of the force of gravity. Its speed increases. The resultant force acts downwards because frictional force acting against it is less than the weight of the object.

The object is not accelerating any more. It has reached its terminal velocity and is falling at a steady speed. The resultant force is zero because the frictional force acting against it is now the same as the weight of the object.
