Question

You drop a single coffee filter of mass 1.3 grams from a very tall building, and it takes 54 seconds to reach the ground. In a small fraction of that time the coffee filter reached terminal speed. (a) What was the upward force of the air resistance while the coffee filter was falling at terminal speed?

Fair =____ N

(b) Next you drop a stack of 4 of these coffee filters. What was the upward force of the air resistance while this stack of coffee filter was falling at terminal speed?

Fair =_____ N

(c) Again assuming again that the stack reaches terminal speed very quickly, about how long will the stack of coffee filters take to hit the ground? (Hint: Consider the relation between speed and the force of air resistance.)

Fall time is approximately _____ s

Answer #1

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

1. Two identical eggs were thrown at the same time from the top
of a building of height 100 m at a speed 20. One egg was thrown at
an angle 40° above the horizontal while another was thrown at the
same angle but below the horizontal. How long does it take for the
other egg to hit the ground after the one of the eggs hits the
ground?
Does the time difference between the eggs hitting the ground
depend...

Design a "bungee jump" apparatus for adults. A bungee jumper falls
from a high platform with two elastic cords tied to the ankles. The
jumper falls freely for a while, with the cords slack. Then the
jumper falls an additional distance with the cords increasingly
tense. Assume that you have cords that are 12
m long, and that the cords stretch in the jump an additional
19
m for a jumper whose mass is 120
kg, the heaviest adult you...
