Here is a EJS version of the simulation similar to the one at http://faculty.ifmo.ru/butikov/Projects/Falling_bodies.html

The force for the particle is assumed to be $\vec{F}=-b\vec{V}-\vec{g}$.
You can adjust parameter b and restitution coefficient with slider.

The id slider control which particle will be modified when x,y,z,vx,vy,vz are adjusted with slider.

You will find "size effect" when b>0. i.e. smaller particle slow down faster.
