i was wondering how you find out how high a bungee jumper will rebound back up after his first jump
That didn't really help i needed for a formula or an explanation
Hm, I hope this helps: "http://www.pa.uky.edu/~moshe/phy231/lecture_notes/bungee_forces.html" [Broken].
PE of the jumper becomes KE during the fall, which in turn becomes PE in the cord.
If we are ignoring drag, then he will reach the same height he jumped from. (Conservation of energy)
Wouldn't internal heat from the rubber stretching rob some of the energy from that?
Separate names with a comma.
