The settling velocity of sedimentary particles is one of the most important parameters. The settling of particles can be analyzed by Newton & Stokes Law .If a single sphere is allowed to fall in a liquid media by assuming certain standard conditions, it’s velocity increases under the action of gravity, but in matter of seconds, under the action of drag, buoyant & gravity forces, the particle attains a constant velocity under definite boundary conditions. This constant Velocity is termed as “Terminal velocity’’.

This review paper will be presenting a literature review on the work done on calculation of Drag Force exerted on a particle and its Terminal Fall Velocity of different particles in different liquid media by different researchers.
