Find the maximum Tension in the rope that supports the bungie jumper.

mass of the jumper is 75kg. neglet air resistance.

2. Relevant equations

would it be Fnet = ma

Fgravity - F Tension = ma

3. The attempt at a solution

im not sure how to approach this.

i know that when the jumper reaches the bottom. the rope flicks and for a moment it gains quite a bit of tension i believe? how would you approach this problem?

is it possible to find out ?
