Graph of Drag Force

APPHMC-UKAQ3X

What do the graphs of Velocity vs. Time and Net Force vs. Time look like for the motion of a skydiver as they fall?

Assume the diver drops from rest and reaches terminal velocity after a certain time.

Assume the skydiver moves downward (negative direction) due to a negative gravitational force and also encounters air resistance on the way down.
