I am trying to calculate the perfect exit point from an aircraft for a skydiver (or anything else exiting a moving object in the sky).
It has been some time with my physics, so I hope someone here can tell me the formula for calculating the forward throw of a simplified skydiver (a ball) given certain constraints (e.g. zerowind, constant air pressure, constant air density...) I hope to end up with a function calcuating forward through (distance) of plane velocity, jumper's; weight, dragkoefficient and surface area. Any help appreciated. /Kim
