Is stoke's law is applicable to a good degree of accuracy for a sphere falling through air?

I have read that stole's law is useful for highly viscous liquids. So is stokes law is applicable for air to a good degree of accuracy.

-Yes ,Stoke Law can be employed safely to get a highly accurate result.(since its a century derieved "Law of Physics).

-The mathamatical expession is :

F(d) is drag force on reaching equlibrium.u is viscosity of liquild under consideration.R is radius of body.v(s) is Terminal Velocity on reaching eqilibrium.

-Yes ,Stoke Law can be employed safely to get a highly accurate result.(since its a century derieved "Law of Physics).

-The mathamatical expession is : F = 6`pi` u R v

F is drag force on reaching equlibrium.

u is viscosity of liquild under consideration.
