the physics in sky diving

When a skydiver falls towards earth, they encounter the force of air resistance. The speed of the skydiver, accelerating downwards, gains speed throughout the fall. The increase in speed is accompanied by the increase in air resistance. The force of air resistance counters the force of gravity. So when the skydiver increases downwards, the force of gravity also increases. Once these forces balance out, the skydiver no longer accelerates.
