Magnet falling in a Copper tube

If you have already seen this then it's okay, if not then see this.

Copper pipe and magnet falling in it

I recently saw this video and got interested in analysing the situation and I took a simplistic situation.

Assume a infinitely long copper tube which is in the shape of a right uniform hollow cylinder with inside radius r1{r}_{1}, outer radius r2 {r}_{2}.

A magnet of magnetic moment MM is dropped from a point on the axis of the cylinder with the magnetic moment vector( or you may interpret it as north south line) being along the axis of the cylinder.

If the terminal velocity of the magnet is given by :

vT=abmcgdρefMhμ0i(1r1jr2j)\displaystyle {v}_{T} = \frac { { a }^{ b }{ m }^{ c }{ g }^{ d }{ \rho }^{ e } }{ f{ M }^{ h }{ \mu }_{ 0 }^{ i } }\left (\frac { 1 }{ { r }_{ 1 }^{ -j }-{ r }_{ 2 }^{ -j } }\right )

Find a+b+c+d+e+f+h+i+ja+b+c+d+e+f+h+i+j.

Details and assumptions:

1) mm= Mass of magnet, gg= Acceleration due to gravity, MM = Magnetic moment ,

ρ\rho=Resistivity of copper(you can also call it specific resistance), μ0{\mu}_{0} = Permeability of vacuum.

2) a,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,ia,b,c,d,e,f,g,h,i are positive integers all less than 2020 where aa is a prime integer, aa,ff are co- prime integers.

3) Assume the magnet to be a point dipole with magnetic moment MM and pointing along the axis of the cylinder as shown in the figure.
