(b) What was the magnitude of the drag force at the same
time?

J
(b) What is the average force of air drag during the course of her
jump? (Enter the magnitude of the force.)
N

A skydiver with mass m = 50.0 kg has reached a terminal velocity
of 20.0 m/s. The skydiver's drag coefficient is:

At one point in time, a skydiver with a mass of 75 kg
experiences a downward acceleration of -4 m/s2 . What is the
weight, net force, and magnitude of the skydiver?

1) A 68 kg skydiver falls at a contast terminal speed of 59m/s.
at what rate is gravitational potential energy being removed from
the earth-skydiver system in kw?
2) A 2.0 kg block is dropped from a height of 40cm onto a spring
of force constant k= 1960 n/m. what is the max displacement of the
spring in cm?

A skydiver of mass m = 70 kg, which includes the mass of all the
equipment she is wearing (helmet, parachute, etc.), jumps from an
airplane at high altitude. The density of the air is ρ = 1.22 kg/m3
.
(a) Estimate a numerical value for the terminal speed of the
diver while she is in a horizontal spread-eagle formation.
(Parachute is not open.) The drag coefficient of the diver in this
formation is about 1.0. Any other needed quantities...

A sack of potatoes weighing 13.1-kg falls from a very tall
building. At a certain point at the motion downwards, its measured
acceleration is 3.7 m/s2 and its velocity is 70.4 m/s. Assuming
that the magnitude of the drag force due to air resistance is
proportional to the square of its speed, What is its terminal
speed?
Select one: a. 89.20 m/s b. 70.40 m/s c. 10.63 m/s d. The sack
keeps accelerating until it reaches the bottom

A 71 kg soccer player jumps vertically upwards and heads the
0.45 kg ball as it is descending vertically with a speed of 27 m/s.
If the player was moving upward with a speed of 4.0 m/s just before
impact, what will be the speed of the ball immediately after the
collision if the ball rebounds vertically upwards and the collision
is elastic?
m/s
If the ball is in contact with the player's head for 20 ms, what is
the...

A student of mass 65.4 kg, starting at rest, slides down a slide
18.2 m long, tilted at an angle of 32.1° with respect to the
horizontal. If the coefficient of kinetic friction between the
student and the slide is 0.133, find the force of kinetic friction,
the acceleration, and the speed she is traveling when she reaches
the bottom of the slide. (Enter the magnitudes.)

A 20 kg kid jumps from a moving swing. When she leaves the swing
she is y1=1.0 m above the ground, moving with a speed v1=2 m/s at
an angle 60 degrees above horizontal.
(a) What is the change in potential energy (∆U) as she moves
from the swing to the ground (y =0 m)?
(b) Use conservation of mechanical energy (∆K + ∆U = 0) to find
her speed as she reaches the ground.
(c) What is the change...
