Will an object falling in still air, with its motion modeled by a set of differential equations, always have a terminal behavior, given that enough time has passed?
Consider meteorites, for example. If after sufficient time has passed, if it's rotating and drifting, is there some guarantee that this falling mode is permanent?
I know that in elementary calculus courses, we study briefly something called "terminal velocity", but I have never heard of "terminal behavior" before, until recently.
The assumption is still air, so, no flow velocities in the background, no wind, etc.
