Dropping a ball

A friend asked me if FW can be used to experiment with different shaped objects dropping through the atmosphere. The idea is that air density changes as you come down from very high altitude (25+ miles). Drag, terminal velocity, surface heating, etc. change as the object drops closer to the surface.

If possible, how would one setup such a simulation?
