You go bungee jumping from a bridge that is 65m high, the bungee cord has an unstretched length of 32m and a spring constant of k=107 N/m(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

You have a mass of 75kg.

Question: what is the acceleration at the bottom, closest to the ground?

I`ve tried to use 1/2kA^{2}=1/2m_{x}+1/2kx^{2}

but it doesn´t seem to work for me :(

please help, I´m not asking for U to solve it but at least give me a couple of hints!!
